Re: Opioids

You should read "Dreamland: The True Tale of America's Opiate Epidemic" by Sam Quinones. Tells the long sorted tale about the explosion of prescription opiods, bogus pain clinics/pill mills, and the perfectly timed influx of cheap Mexican Brown heroin. I can't recommend that book highly enough if y...

Not sure why, but I always get "Leader of the Band" mixed up with "Mr. Bojangles". You should write a parody based on the latter. Gritty is in right now, might have a better chance of going big.

A flat fee is a flat fee. The caddy would have gotten that if Kuch missed the cut which means not working two less days.
Restaurants also charge a flat fee and then you customarily leave more than a 0.4% tip.
You don't pay the server 3 grand just to bring you your food, though.

Also, he gave $5K but offered $20K which pretty clearly means he intended to give only $5K and the caddie was like "WTF?" Well, again, they had agreed on a payment. Then he happened to win. He hadn't won in like four years, so he probably didn't have a lot of thought of winning that week. So to off...

It well and truly is-ish. I imagine that this caddy probably agreed to a flat fee because he was just a one-off, which is kind of normal. That said, once Kuchar won he should have kicked him some extra, even if it wasn't the full caddy share. ETA: A local fill-in caddy has fairly limited value to a ...

It's also dangerous because it's creating targets.
