Mike Schilling

Mike has been a software engineer far longer than he would like to admit. He has strong opinions on baseball, software, science fiction, comedy, contract bridge, and European history, any of which he's willing to share with almost no prompting whatsoever.

    I’m flummoxed as to what Mike Schilling fancied worked so well. The Office of Economic Opportunity? AFDC? Public housing? The penology and police procedure in vogue ca. 1970? Monetary policy as administered by Arthur Burns and G. William Miller? The price controls in the petroleum sector that George McGovern and James Abourezk were so intent on retaining? The Fairness Doctrine? Cartels and sundry mercantile controls in airlines and trucking? Jimmy Carter’s gamesmanship in Iran and Nicaragua? Pre-1984 Medicare reimbursement schedules? Pre-1984 actuarial principles re federal employee pensions?Report
