I see that some see whining as an issue when commenting on reduced benefits. I respectfully disagree. Some of us see problems and we point them out. To me that is far from whining, it's being observant and judicious at the same time. Just my two cents. No offense to any posters, just my opinion that the forum sohuld be open to all strips and opinions.
That "some" would be me. And no offense taken. And I'm glad the forum is open to my strips and opinion as well as others. It'll be interesting to see just how much good the observant and judicious comments change things. This ain't the hill I'm going to die on. Too many more battles to fight.
I remember that large statue at Fort Benning, the one showing the infantryman yelling "follow me!" (which I did for three years) but I realize that all of us have points of view, but that Mine is what matters! (just kidding). I was not singling you or anyone out just trying to get across that there is value in all comments here.
