Good news from NC

The State of NC sent me a post card today. The legislature magnanimously allowed retirees a raise in our pensions earned by spending years educating the children. Such a raise has not been given for so many years, I can't remember the last one. Our generous increase will not put us level with the Koch's, but it will keep us near the poverty line. The amount? 1%. Per. Year. 1%? Ironic isn't it? My share of this great wealth is $23 per month or the cost of two bottles of cheap white wine.

I shall now bow down to the NC State Legislature and sing hosannas while I sip a glass of my retirement increase.

On edit, the $23 was for 2 months. Guess I'll have to settle for one bottle of wine.
