Mortgage Guaranty Insurance Corporation (MGIC) allegedly required women on leave to return to work before they would insure their mortgages.
Also on this week show: it’s the travel season and AAA reported that 39 million Americans were on the road this past Fourth of July weekend. Were you one of them?
With regard to air travel, the TSA has issued a warning that human bomb terrorists might use explosives planted within their bodies to blow up planes. Calling this warning “insight” into recent intelligence, the warning pertains mainly to overseas flights, but even domestically, security personnel and travelers are being advised to take extra precautions.
How does this affect the rest of your summer travel plans?
