Robert Wilson is President & CEO of WorkersCompensation.com, and "From Bob's Cluttered Desk" comes his (often incoherent) thoughts, ramblings, observations and rants - often on workers' comp or employment issues, but occasionally not.

Enter at your own risk, and like all of our blog areas, we encourage you to read the disclaimer at the bottom of the page.
