<< If anyone out there has thoughts on how someone my age should allocate money in a 401(k)
plan, I'm interested in hearing your ideas. >>

Rayvt:
< Go for as close to an index fund as you can. Agitate for them to add one to your investment choices.>

Me:

At the risk of sounding overly pedantic (or is that redundant?), allow me to speculate that Rayvt is almost certainly recommending an index fund based on the S&P 500, & not the Russell 2000 or a Far East stock index, etc. ;-)
Just in case your 401K custodian asks: "OK, which index?"
