    Forget the games. Mediation is just a political manipulation. Go to court. When you look at the clowns Fox, Paiva Weed and the missing Linc, it’s obvious that the fix is in. Carter Taft just another political hack. The sad part is there are honest people who worked their whole careers for the state of RI and local communities who are being unfairly screwed. COLAS are not some great give away as some commenters would like to have us believe. They are reasonable adjustments based on long term records of inflation.
