"Hi, this is Marcy from Comcast Cable. I'm calling with a great new offer. . ."
"Um, is Comcast still evil?"
"I'm sorry sir, I didn't catch that - is Comcast still . . ."
"Evil. Is Comcast still evil? Or did they give that up?"
"Um, I, um . . . I'm not sure what . . ."
"That doesn't sound like a no, Marcy. Sorry, unless they decide to be 'not evil' I won't subscribe. Goodbye, have a great night."

Sometimes I'm not too proud to be a Philadelphian. CIGNA CEO Edward Hanway made $78,000,000 - yes, that's 78 million dollars - in salary and bonus over the last 5 years. What did he do to earn all that dough? Let people die. Deny coverage to people like Nataline Sarkisyan, a 17 year old in need of a liver transplant. To top it off, when the Sarkisyan's traveled from California to Philadelphia to confront Hanway, a CIGNA employee on a balcony of their posh offices flipped them the bird.
