Sometimes a picture is better than a thousand words

Well, there are a few words in this Non Sequitor cartoon, but just a few!

Where your insurance premiums actually go

It’s been some time since I posted on this Blog, and I apologize for that. We’ve been just a little busy with some of our ongoing bad faith suits and class actions. I’ll certainly try to do better. There was something in the media today that I think is very important reading. To put things […]
