Good morning Steve,


I heard the piece on NPR this morning and wanted to say thanks for providing great new material for my labor class this semester. (My husband heard it on his way to work and called me.  He is an electrician through a local union that overspends on health benefits, at least from our perspective.) I miss the matter-of-fact way you have of explaining things, so I found it especially enjoyable.  I wish NPR would do a whole series like this, or maybe you can start a YouTube channel and address all sorts of common misunderstandings. J


Hope you, your family, and the department are doing well!


Kind regards,
