Tim does it again. Last week I noted that the blog was about to cross the 600,000 visitor threshold. In an offhand remark, I asked my predictive expert, Tim, to predict when this event would occur. Tim privately emailed me that the blog would crossover at 8:08 p.m. last night. While I don't know precisely when last night it occurred, but we have crossed over and Tim guessed it right again. I don't know how you do it Tim, but perhaps you want to predict the vote in the next presidential election?

On the PERS front, most window retirees have gotten their August 1st check showing the deduction for Attorney Fees in the Strunk case. As expected, the August take home benefit increased by a small amount, or it decreased by an equally small amount. The amount by which your benefit changed on August 1 over July 1 should indicate how much your benefit take home will *increase* on September 1. Add the amount of the attorney fee back to your take home and you'll have your future take home resulting from the August 1, 2008 COLA. PERS sent out the stubs for the August check yesterday and most members should start to see them today or in the next few days.
