We continue to march militantly in the wrong direction - due, as ever, to the insane system of campaign financing we allow to persist. Here's the latest move by corporate America to make our lives more miserable. There's a stinky little hickey in the tax bill passed by the House of Representatives that would make it much, much easier for companies to reclassify their employees as independent contractors. And independent contractors, of course, do not get health insurance, pension benefits or unemployment insurance.

First, she taunted Pamela Hanible. She cut pictures of her children to ribbons with a razor and put razor blades in her spare shoes, Hanible's relatives said. Then, she escalated her harassment into a confrontation that ended with Caroline Guy slapping Hanible at work. Two weeks ago, Guy began asking people where she could buy a gun so she could kill Hanible. Last week, Hanible told her family that Guy was going to kill her. Yesterday, she did, police said. They said Guy shot and killed Hanible as she came to work at Van Leer Corp.

A Transportation Security Administration worker who pretended to find drugs in a passenger's bag at Philadelphia International Airport in January had played the prank more than once and told one of his victims that "she would have to admit it was funny," according to TSA documents. The documents, which detail the dopey antics of a bomb-appraisal officer whose name has been blacked out, were released on the Smoking Gun website this week. The Inquirer broke the story of Rebecca Solomon, 22, who on Jan. 5 became the unsuspecting butt of the officer's joke when he pretended to find a white, powdery substance in her luggage.
