True. It's sad. People worry more about their golf swing than they do their retirement money!

You ask some people "What are you doing to save for retirement?"

Typically, they will say "Oh, it's going into my IRA." Or "my 401k". Or whatever.

Then ask them "What is it doing within there? I mean, how is it invested?"

Usually, you get a blank stare.

Sad.
