I read in the New York Times that the British government is going to tighten up their anti-squatting laws making it easier for property owners to evict squatters on their property. I know many countries have "squatters rights" laws, but the concept just does not compute in my feeble little mind. A squatter is like a burglar except after he breaks in he just stays. Why can't you just say, "Hey, you, get out"?
Looks like American Airlines is on financial life support....again. They're the only major airline that didn't make money last year. In fact, they've made a profit only once or twice in the past 10 years. Here's what gets me: They still justify paying their senior executives huge bonuses, saying if they don't they'll lose their "top talent". Here's a news flash for ya, American: You're delusional. You don't have any "top talent". They all left a long time ago.
