Here's the definitive folk song about Lizzie Bordon from the Chad Mitchell Trio https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7wlO-J0v9ZY Yesterday in old Fall River Mr. Andrew Borden died And he got his daughter, Lizzie On a charge of homicide Some folks say she didn't do it And others say of course she did But they all agree, Miss Lizzie B Was a problem kinda kid 'Cause you can't chop your Papa up in Massachausetts Not even if it's planned As a surprise (a surprise) No, you can't chop your Papa up in Massachausetts You know how neighbors love to criticize Well, she got him on the sofa Where he'd gone to take a snooze And I hope he went to Heaven 'Cause he wasn't wearing shoes Lizzie kinda rearranged him With a hatchet so they say Then she got her mother In that same old fashioned way But you can't chop your Mama up in Massachausettes Not even if you're tired of Her cuisine (her cuisine) No can't chop your mama up in Massachausetts You know it's almost sure to cause a scene Well, they really kept her Hopping on that busy afternoon With both down and upstairs chopping While she hummed a ragtime tune They really made her hustle And when all was said and done She'd removed her mother's bustle When she wasn't wearing one Now can't chop your Mama up in Massachusetts And then blame all the damage On the mice (on the mice) No, you can't chop your Mama up in Massachausetts That sort of thing just isn't very nice Now it wasn't done for pleasure And it wasn't done for spite And it wasn't done because The lady wasn't very bright She'd always done the slightest thing That mom and papa bid They said, Lizzie, cut it out So that's exactly what she did But you can't chop your Papa up in Massachausetts And then get dressed And go out for a walk No, you can't chop your Papa up in Massachausetts Massachausetts is a far cry From New York You can't chop your Papa up in Massachausetts Shut the door and lock and latch it Here comes Lizzie with a brand new hatchet You can't chop your Papa up in Massachausetts Such a snob I've heard it said She met her pa and cut him dead You can't chop your Papa up in Massachausetts Jump like a fish Jump like a porpoise All join hands and habeas corpus You can't chop your Papa up in Massachausetts Massachausetts is a far cry From New York
Gregory,at 01:32 you write " pay and benefits exceeding that of the private sector for the same sorts of jobs." That doesn't hold up under the most casual research. For example Sylvia Mathews Burwell is current Cabinet head of Health and Human Services, receives a salary of $199,700. Here's a look at what execs in the private sector make: "The New York Times by Compdata Surveys: $584,000 on average for an insurance chief executive officer, $386,000 for a hospital C.E.O. and $237,000 for a hospital administrator, compared with $306,000 for a surgeon and $185,000 for a general doctor. And those numbers almost certainly understate the payment gap, since top executives frequently earn the bulk of their income in nonsalary compensation. In a deal that is not unusual in the industry, Mark T. Bertolini, the chief executive of Aetna, earned a salary of about $977,000 in 2012 but a total compensation package of over $36 million, the bulk of it from stocks vested and options he exercised that year. Likewise, Ronald J. Del Mauro, a former president of Barnabas Health, a midsize health system in New Jersey, earned a salary of just $28,000 in 2012, the year he retired, but total compensation of $21.7 million." http://www.nytimes.com/2014/05/18/sunday-review/doctors-salaries-are-not-the-big-cost.html?_r=0
