You are so right!!!

I figure when Starkist finally does settle, my check and everyone else's will be for less than a dollar. The codicil remark was made in jest. But then I could have the codicil state that the monies are to go into a trust fund. I am open to all suggestions. What should I do with my paltry settlement? Will those who opted for the cans of tuna have to add the market value to their taxes as income?

Oh dear! This settlement (if it ever comes) is opening a whole can of worms for everyone!!!

Latest Update!

A decision was finally made the Judge. Then another appeal was filed. Just the news we all wanted to hear. I am beginning to think this is all a hoax.

In the classroom and 1st pool session, scuba students are taught the first rule when it comes to breathing with compressed air/gas, "Don't hold your breath!"

Every time I read about a person on death row, the next sentence states that due to appeals, they have been there for 20 years or more. Can I hold on until I am in my 90's?
