<<Maybe I should re-phrase that last post.
Everybody who depends on anything is a little nervous.
Future tends to be unpredictable at the best of times - and all times
are the best of times and the worst.
Financial meltdowns are to be expected as the decades pass by. Good times are followed by bad times for a while--- depend on it. Bad times are followed by good times.
The issue of my 25 year history of investing in Washington Mutual stock is already resolved. The real issue is when to start picking up bargains with cash I've accumulated in recent years.
If you can't deal with those realities, don't invest in stocks.
