Commentary Sandwiched somewhere in the middle of the estimated 387 Christmas catalogues that came in the mail the other day was a letter. That was the good news. The bad news was who it was from: The AARP. Worse news, it was addressed to me.

" Forget that I'm years away from being an "RP," and forget that, technically, I am still years away from the age of 50, the standard age at which I was led to believe a person became eligible for membership.

“I would like to see all the people that signed a petition about Zimmerman be put on jury duty.” - Hagerstown “Waitress with questions about her tips: In my past days as a waitress, no employer had the right to take our tips or even ask how much we made in tips. We were paid $2.38 an hour. On credit card tips, some restaurants give the employee their tips once or twice a month. Some give out credit card tips at the end of the shift. The United States Labor Board is in the government pages of the phone book.
