    The New York Times's housing columnist is being sued by her landlord over allegations of $35,000 in unpaid rent. Joyce Cohen, who writes the popular series The Hunt, featuring the trials and tribulations of New Yorkers attempting to navigate the city's real estate swamp, was sued on Tuesday in New York Supreme Court. Cohen and her husband, Benjamin Meltzer, are accused of subletting an apartment on the Upper West Side while their own home two blocks away was near another being renovated, and then refusing to pay the rent. The couple took over the apartment in November 2020, after it was advertised on Craigslist. They were looking for somewhere quiet, as Cohen suffers from hyperacusis - a condition of extreme sensitivity to noise, which forces her to wear industrial-grade ear protection when she leaves the home. The original renters, Amit and Jasmine Matta, moved to another property they owned as it was more suitable for their daughter during the pandemic, and Jasmine was recovering from cancer. Cohen and Meltzer agreed to pay $2,999 a month, on the understanding that it...
    When Prince George’s County, Maryland, Public Schools leaders suddenly announced that the week leading up to winter break, and the two weeks after, would feature virtual learning, they acknowledge it wasn’t a popular decision. But schools CEO Monica Goldson said the only thing school leaders could do with so many outbreaks spreading around the county was wait it out. More Education News More Prince George’s County News “We stopped the spread of COVID,” Goldson said at an event in Capitol Heights a week after kids returned to the classroom. Last week, kids were also sent home with antigen rapid tests, with instructions to parents to administer those tests Sunday, ahead of the return to class on Monday morning. Goldson said that was a success, too, with no tech issues reported. “Today was the first day where students and parents were back in schools after utilizing” their tests, noted Goldson. “We had over 85,000 tests uploaded into our database and just a few students who tested positive. So as far as I’m concerned, that’s positive, because I never want those...

    At least one of the overall truths about the politics of red and blue states is rooted in a huge dose of hypocrisy. If, as they generally claim, Republicans want the federal government to tax less, spend less and do less, a massive transfer of wealth and resources would flow from red (Republican-leaning) states to blue (Democratic-leaning) states. Or, to put it more precisely, if the government taxed less and spent less, rich people and businesses predominantly in blue states would save a lot of money on their taxes, and poor people and businesses predominantly in red states would lose a lot of federal aid. I rely for that paragraph on Paul Krugman’s latest column, which in turn relied on a just-released report by the Rockefeller Institute of Government, which found that blue states pay significantly more than their per capita share into the federal treasury, and red states get significantly more than their share of the benefit of how those taxes are spent. Article continues after advertisement Why does that represent, as I said above, a huge dose of...

    CHICAGO (CBS) — He’s been fighting to stay alive for nearly a decade, but after years of intensive nursing care, Patrick Stein’s insurance company, Blue Cross Blue Shield of Illinois, is taking it all away. His doctor warns it’s a move he might not survive. CBS 2 Investigator Megan Hickey is asking why. Patrick, 27, is incredibly smart, but he’s been trapped inside his body for a decade. He was only 17 when he came home from his homecoming dance with a pounding headache. His parents rushed him to the emergency room, and doctors rushed him into surgery. “The aneurysm ruptured while he was on the table,” said his father, Nick. A massive stroke left Patrick with only the use of his eyes, which he now uses to spell out words, using a color and letter code. With his eyes, he talks about the future, about finishing his associate’s degree, about one day moving out; but now his family worries that will never happen. “Without this he will die,” said his mother, Colleen. For years, his insurance provider, Blue Cross...
