Medicare for All: A Time for Honesty

E. Kent Yucel                 I would like to give some additional perspective on the widely-touted Medicare for All (MFA) movement, which seems almost to have become a litmus test for being considered a competitive Democratic presidential candidate. Unfortunately, MFA, as it is used in the parlance of most advocates as well as the Democratic presidential candidates, skips over several important issues. These issues cut to the heart of whether or not MFA is a feasible approach to achieving u...

Targets of Opportunity

–James Mahoney, Razor’s Edge Communications Every now and then, lightning strikes where a creative team sees a terrific, fast-turn opportunity to have a little fun.

Buying a Home? You May Need a $100,000 Salary.

Today, I’m picking some low-lying fruit of the “newsy” variety. It comes straight from the top of my email inbox courtesy of Zillow’s Media Room. I know the title gave it away.

That means that nearly two thirds of home buyers make less than $100,000. You still have a better than average chance of buyi...

Moen Moan, Part Duex

–James Mahoney, Razor’s Edge Communications Back in the ’70s, National Geographic ran a story on Boston firefighters. The writer mentioned a barb that a fireman tossed his way. “Ya gonna do another silver jets piece, huh?” Adding sarcastically, “Ya know: silver jets of water piercing the dark sky as they bravely battle the inferno…” I owe that firefighter a debt. Since I read his diss, Silver Jets has been a mental caution sign against veering too far into the preciously romantic. (Well, most of...
