File this Under "C" for Chutzpah

Not only are Long Island Rail Road retirees double dipping by collecting disability payments in addition to their pensions, but now The New York Times reports that they are getting free golf.

Under New York State law, persons qualified as "disabled" by the Social Security administration are eligible for free admission to New York State parks, golf courses and campgrounds.

Don't get me started on this! Not only am I, as a taxpayer and paying golfer subsidizing their game, but if they are truly disabled they are probably playing slow, too.
