The Point

Florida Workers' Comp

I will try in this post to get to The Point. I know many of my regular readers think I struggle with that. I meander, wander, and at times appear utterly lost. I get it. J.R.R. Tolkien noted in The Fellowship of the Ring (1954) that all may not be as appears: “All that is gold does not glitter, Not all those who wander are lost; The old that is strong does not wither, Deep roots are not reached by the frost." This, of course, does not mean I am not lost.

Perspectives on Evidence

Florida Workers' Comp

One of the great challenges of teaching students who wish to become lawyers is their view of facts. There is a tendency to see facts as absolutisms. I struggle at times to get them to accept, or at least consider, that there might be two perspectives on any given set of facts.

RMDs: The Mandatory “Flipped Switch”

Money Talk

In my book, Flipping a Switch , I refer to required minimum distributions (RMDs) as “the mandatory flipped switch” (i.e., transition). This is because, unlike many other decisions in later life that involve choices, there is no choice about RMDs. They must begin starting at age 72, unless taxpayers want to pay a hefty 50% tax penalty. In conversations with older adults at classes that I teach, many tell me that RMDs are affecting their income taxes in a big way.
