Know Your Scumbag, Part 2

Ronald A. Williams can suck my god damn dick.This is Ronald A. Williams, CEO of AETNA. His total compensation in 2008 was a tad over $24 million dollars.

When he joined the company in 2001 it was losing $266 million a year. By 2006 AETNA was making over $1.7 billion in profits.


By dumping over 8 million insurers who were deemed unprofitable. You know... sick people, while at the same time raising rates for everyone else.

Oh, and those "everyone else's"? Those are big corporations like Bank of America and FedEx. Yes, you're paying higher rates for those services because they're being charged higher insurance rates by AETNA.

So you subsidize AETNA every time you send cookies to grandma. Sweet.


death noteOn a less fragrant 'note', I've just discovered an incredible anime called "Death Note". This thing is a blast! Subtle. Smart. Sublimely cold-blooded.

The plot concerns a high-school senior, Light Yagami, who discovers a supernatural notebook used by the death gods, or shinagami. If you think of a person's face and write their name in this book, the person dies. But that just scratches the surface of the intricacies of the death note, and to share anything else would spoil the fun.

I'm only up to episode 16 and I can't wait for what's to come. If you'd like to check it out go to and search the Anime section.
