employee signs an employment contract, it's drafted by the employer 
on mostly a take-it-or-leave-it basis.  But when Howie Carr signs a

Judge Van Gestel is a highly respected judge, who had a distinguished 
career in law practice before he went on the bench -- at a 
considerable pay cut.  He sits in the Superior Court business session
