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.

I’ve said it before. Thank God for Waffle House. The venerable all night (largely) southern eatery has provided much blog fodder over the years. It is an operation that, largely due to location, ... Read More
