They ought to give you an award for the "best comment of the year."
In fact, I think it's the best comment I've heard in my 62 years! If
you ever consider running for any political office, count on me for a
donation. As far as I'm concerned, the minimum wage should be at $15 per
hour. It's time people realized that prosparity in a country, is gained
by assuring, that the lowest paid workers will earn enough to pay for
food and rent, instead of kissing up to callous right wing business

I think Carnell should follow your "subtle" suggestion!
