As expected, the Commissioner of Labor has appealed Administrative Law Judge Henry Sullivan’s determination that I be given unemployment benefits, and yesterday was the deadline for submitting my statement in support of Judge Sullivan’s decision. When I looked at his written decision again yesterday, one sentence made me smile: “The blog is designed to provide a resource for such women and to keep them abreast of her efforts to create button-down shirts for those women.”

The extremely courteous and professional Judge Sullivan’s humor is so subtle, I missed it when I read the decision in June, but we all know he could have used “keep them posted” or “keep them updated” in that sentence. ūüôā
