Two business articles in the LA Times raise more questions than answers:
* So will grocery workers avoid a strike and get better access to health care in this next round of contract negotiations? There’s a blackout on negotiations, but the article seems positive. In particular, there seems to be agreement on reducing the waiting times for new hires and their children to get coverage to six months (from the current waiting times as long as 18 or 30 months).
* So what issue caused the finance chief of BlueCross to be dismissed? If someone is whacked on the Sopranos, you kind of wonder if it is for doing something *especially* wrong, or maybe for doing something something right.
