The Appeals Court decided that the driver, fired by transport company Vimeca after running over a pedestrian during his 14th hour of service, was unjustly discharged.

Andrew Tobias: Listen to a Highly Placed Long-Time Republican Staffer

The [Republican] Congressional directory now reads like a casebook of lunacy.
It was this cast of characters and the pernicious ideas they represent that impelled me to end a nearly 30-year career as a professional staff member on Capitol Hill. A couple of months ago, I retired; but I could see as early as last November that the Republican Party would use the debt limit vote, an otherwise routine legislative procedure that has been used 87 times since the end of World War II, in order to concoct an entirely artificial fiscal crisis. Then, they would use that fiscal crisis to get what they wanted, by literally holding the US and global economies as hostages.
