Let's not tinker with dividend program

Posted: Friday, February 19, 2010

Life is not fair. At least that is Katy Neher's belief why people who die halfway through a year should get a final PFD. Next, shall we hear from people who's loved one died at 179 days into a year? Should we change the law for them? Maybe we should just hand people a PFD upon them entering the state and then on the anniversary of that date every year. How about if a person or family leaves the state because of medical reasons or job hunting? Maybe we should send them checks also.

Let us not tinker with the PFD, no matter how tempting it is to change things to make others feel better. That is not enough of a reason.
