FSM Kiva team reaches $1.5 million.

Another company that sucks: Jimmy John’s.

Man, it’s going to pain me to give up Jimmy John’s, but it’s the thing to do. A CEO who has publicly railed against the cost of providing health insurance to his employees has donated tens of thousands of dollars to a private health care clinic in his Florida community.
