auto insurance: What to do when you hit a Cadillac Escalade. - 05/07/10 12:22 AM
The day didn't start very well for Cynthia.  She didn't hear the alarm going off, the kids weren't up getting ready for school, and she had thirty minutes to get them all dressed, fed, and loaded into her Explorer.
Rushed is an understatement.
She swore that the light was yellow when she stepped on the gas to beat the red.  It felt like slow motion watching the driver's panicked face as the front of her Explorer crushed his white Cadillac Escalade like a beer can.  One witness said that the Escalade rolled twice, but it only looked that way.  It only … (66 comments)

auto insurance: Buying cheap wine and insurance. - 05/02/10 11:47 PM
I'm not really sure that there is a difference, you know.  Between cheap wine and better wine.  According to my wine drinking friends, there is a difference (My brother-in-law can tell you the differences, ad nauseum.)
I hear all kinds of reasons why expensive wine is better.  Aged better. Doesn't taste bitter. And on an on.

So, the Sunday grump.  I wrote … (0 comments)

auto insurance: How to introduce your insurance agent. - 04/23/10 02:02 AM
I ran into a friend yesterday morning.  He was sitting with one of his business colleagues and I walked up to say hello.  "Hey, Todd," he said, and turned to his colleague and introduced me, "this is my insurance salesman."
I'm not sure I was comfortable with this introduction.  It didn't really rub me the wrong way, per se, but if I'm being honest, I felt the introduction beneath me (I know, pride issue.).  An insurance salesman.  I guess I've never thought of myself in this way before.  Yes, I do provide insurance products, and people buy them, but I prefer to think … (2 comments)
