I've provided a lot of advice and redressed a lot of wrongs, and I must say that what you've posted makes utter sense. Please persist in the good work - the more people know the better they'll be outfitted to cope with the tax man, and that's what it's all about.

Comment on Roommates.com Subject to Fair Housing Law by Michael http://whatlawyersdo.com/2008/12/11/roommatescom/#comment-124 Michael Mon, 11 May 2009 20:29:41 +0000 http://whatlawyersdo.com/?p=636#comment-124 You can't give a lecture about how it's 'wrong and bigoted' to "discriminate" in terms of co-habitantation, and then say it's OK for women to only want females just because you think so, no matter how strong an argument you present. Everyone has a reason for their preferences, the same way you do concerning women. What makes your opinion/preference more valid than anyone elses?? If someone can't be free to decide for themselves who they are comfortable eating breakfast across the table from *in their own home*, then the rights of homeowners are being trampled far worse than those you suggest are being "discriminated" against.

Comment on United Health Must Overhaul its Databases by pino http://whatlawyersdo.com/2009/01/19/united-health-must-overhaul-its-databases/#comment-90 pino Mon, 19 Jan 2009 06:54:41 +0000 http://whatlawyersdo.com/?p=760#comment-90 Eric, you have left out a large amount of details. We know that by going to Memorial, Ms. Jerome was out of network. But what we don't know is what the total bill was, much less what was covered. Now, don't get me wrong. The fact that UHG owns Ingenix smacks of bad bad juju. But you have to do better than this to convince me that we have to abandon market based solutions for Universal HealthCare. Specifically, why do you believe that government agencies are going to behave better than private ones? Eric, you have left out a large amount of details. We know that by going to Memorial, Ms. Jerome was out of network. But what we don’t know is what the total bill was, much less what was covered.

Now, don’t get me wrong. The fact that UHG owns Ingenix smacks of bad bad juju. But you have to do better than this to convince me that we have to abandon market based solutions for Universal HealthCare.

Specifically, why do you believe that government agencies are going to behave better than private ones?

I don’t know if that is something contested by the fair housing advocates in this case, but I believe that safety and privacy concerns trump any fair housing argument in that discrete situation." Sorry, you can't pick and choose. No gender discrimination means just that. “One caveat I would add, though, is that I think it is okay for women to only want a female roommate.
