Rather than watching your investment disappear as a company becomes worthless... As a choice for stability in the long-term instead of today's...
Yesterday while driving through the Picture Rocks area to the west of Tucson, I noticed some interesting things here & there.  One of which I wrote about last night, a whimsical Air Conditioner Repair sign featuring a mannequin "deep into his work" on an AC unit. Another thing I saw made me turn ...
I don't care what side anyone was on concerning the "bailout bill" - it is what we have in front of us...and we all have to figure out how to work with it.
