Re: Web-based insurance

Meh. I haven't seen much difference there. If you have a favorite body shop they probably give the best advice as to who is the best to deal with.

Re: Web-based insurance

I've done both over the years, as well as an Allstate with agent, and an independent insurance agent now (my neighbor), who beat both Geico and Allstate. Never had any real problem with any of them Re: paying claims. He's a good agent and knew how to get the best coverage without adding lots to the ...

While not an extreme fan of any of the teams, it was always great to be inundated with multiple playoff series on the local sports channels, plus the west coast games if you felt like staying up late. This time around I have to suffer through watching on...

Re: Random Thoughts Again

Changing perception can be an adequate (although incomplete) deterrent. If laws are changed, say, to restrict secondary sales of arms, it may keep some from bothering to obtain a weapon they thought makes them look cool. TSA checks at the airport are a joke. But does it deter anyone? Probably some o...

No gaming the system, Grower: you can't start making proxy predictions when there's already a line out on your number of predictions. Vegas will come find you.
