I seldom respond to comments posted here under one of my columns. I have a good reason for that too. I’ve said my piece.

In our sick twisted minds, at one time or another, we all have wished certain insurance companies could get a taste of their own bitter medicine; then, maybe, keel over an die. Relax, it’s just an expression. I don’t want anyone to die. Recently, one of those insurance companies did get a taste of it’s own medicine, and the adjuster was furious. He was furious and I was laughing like a mad man.
