On October 29th I got real cocky and started talking about what I called engineered severance. I acknowledged that it wasn't insurance. But what a weekend's worth of modeling has shown me is that I really can take most of the strategies that the insurance guys are using and use them to extend severance benefits...and not insignificantly. Rather than call it engineered severance which might freak soime people out, let's call it extended severance, because that is basically what it is.
Stick with me, and I'll figure out how to best explain how it works to you all.
