Double oops. I think I posted my last reply to your message as a new post instead of as a reply. Anyway I now see that you did recommend the total stock index fund, not the 500. My reason for not wanting to do that is set out in my last post. I'm even reconsidering that, though, since I've read somewhere that the 500 indexes have done well recently only because the stocks that are in the S&P 500 have led the market, but that this hasn't always been the case and may not be the case in the future. So maybe I'll consider putting some money into both the 500 and the total market index, AND picking a small-cap fund. We'll see. Everything is up in the air right now; I would like to get my money moving into SOMETHING pretty soon though.
