too much typing—since 2003


ADS financial corner

Direct from Phil Proctor (Firesign Theatre):

If you had purchased $1,000 of Delta Air Lines stock one year ago, you would
have $49 left. With Fannie Mae, you would have $2.50 left of the original $1,000. With
AIG, you would have less than $15 left. But, if you had purchased $1,000 worth of beer
one year ago, drunk all of the beer, then turned in the cans for the aluminum recycling
refund, you would have $214 cash.

Based on the above, the best current investment advice is to drink heavily.

Guess it's time I haul my empties down to the recycle place. Might get rich. Quickly, too!

And here I am throwing my retirement fund into the recycling bin every week. It's a government plot somehow.
