This month, the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services improperly allowed a total of $50 million to be deposited into the bank accounts of hundreds of thousands of participants in the new prescription drug plan. And this week, employees at the Woodlawn-based agency began the difficult task of getting all of that money back. CMS spokesman Jeff Nelligan said that a data processing error among a small team of workers in Woodlawn stopped the Social Security Administration from automatically deducting prescription drug premiums from about 231,000 participants' Social Security checks.

I borrowed money from my boss for personal reasons and signed a letter allowing him to deduct $150 from my check every two weeks, a rate of $300 a month. Now he has advised me that he intends to double that amount to $600 a month. I cannot afford this, nor did I sign an amended agreement allowing him to take that amount of money from my check. Can he change the terms of our agreement on his own? Absolutely not. Except for income taxes and court-ordered payments, he must have your written approval to deduct money from your wages.

BOSTON -- For decades, critics of American culture have written about the sheer insanity of paying a teacher for one year's work what an athlete earns in a day. What utter madness underwrites a culture, these critics aver, that prizes entertainment over education, a society that literally values taking our minds off of important matters rather than learning these important matters in the first place. The utter irrationality of it all has recently been captured by the owner of the Texas Rangers baseball team who laments the egregiously high salaries he and his fellow owners pay to players.

Despite some boardroom soul-searching, the dampened economy seems to have done little to restrain spending at one of Baltimore's most lavish and expensive executive parties - the corporate village at the Preakness infield. Local businesses have been pressured more than ever this year to justify the sometimes six-figure cost of throwing an invitation-only fete at Pimlico Race Course during the Preakness Stakes. The one-day binge can cost more than the annual salary of an employee or two - an awkward check to write at a time when earnings are down and companies are cutting employees and slashing costs.
