How's Your Retirement Account Doing?

Schmuck! That's if you're like most Americans and have seen the value of your retirement fund dip alarmingly with the collapse of the economy.

Shoulda been a "top executive!" According to the WSJ, their pensions have risen an average of 19 percent in 2009 - with more than 200 excecs seeing a 50 percent increase in their pension...

Also news in the WSJ, the private sector shed more than 200,000 jobs in October and big bonuses are back for Wall Street bankers...

The yin and yang of life in America.

Haven't seen you comment in "Baseline" for awhile. We need the antithesis for the evil "Bond Girl" haha. I noticed there is a story on Ayn Rand in the most recent (most recent in print) New Yorker. Honestly I haven't read it yet, but it's rare to find a bad story in the New Yorker. I notice it's pronounced similarly to "I'm" and I always thought it was supposed to be pronounced similar to "ain't" the AY part I mean. Anyway........
