DeSilva both proud and guilty after Spotlight

Bruce DeSilva, like most career journalists, was inspired by the movie Spotlight, which in his case hit close to home. Too close, as he explains in this blog entry.

Retiree to Tribune: Bah, humbug!

In March of this year, as a retiree, I received a letter from Tribune Publishing saying that Tribune Publishing would discontinue the current group term life insurance program for retirees effective 12/27/15.

The “other shoe dropped” today when I received a mailing from CIGNA (Life Insurance Company of North America) on how to continue my coverage – if I wished – at my own expense.

I never went beyond the basic $3000 coverage that The Courant  provided all those many years ago and, at first, I didn’t even recognize CIGNA as an insurance with which I was associated, until I figured out that it was the life insurance.

It will be a very happy day when the Tribune has no further need or reason to communicate with me. (Meaning that Tribune has exhausted the benefits that it can discontinue or deny).

In the spirit of the season, bah humbug!

Joyous holidays to you, your loved ones and my Courant family.
