No mention of being invaluable to patients in southeastern Michigan. The combined system can come to Blue Cross and say, here are the rates we get paid in Illinois and Wisconsin and we want something closer to those rates in Michigan. In response to the judge's temporary restraining order, the Census Bureau said Tuesday it would refrain from laying off census takers who were in late phases of the door-knocking operation.

Fine for the option money, a little light on the contingent pilot, pick-up and episodic payments and, of course, farce on the definition of net profits. This is my first book sale to Hollywood and Barry Levinson is an A-lister; I should be grateful for this offer and worried that if I nickel-and-dime, Levinson may develop something else for his first television series.
