I like Mark. But as I see it, Mark put a chip on his shoulder, and hollered out "Knock this chip off my shoulder! I dare you!" And Rich went ahead and did exactly that.

I started the ball rolling on the issue of teaching finance in schools. I didn't view it as a liberal or conservative issue, but it somewhere became one along the way. I don't see how anyone could oppose teaching basic finance to students as a way of preparing them for life. Who knows, maybe a few of the teachers might learn basic finance too. I guess some folks disagree, which just goes to show that my views aren't necessarily held by everyone else, which is something I've known for most of my life. Why folks can't have a civil discussion on the subject is beyond me.
