I think what folks were trying to discern is the overarching point, that's all. There really wasn't any overarching point except that I found it scary. I'm assuming, I know, that Vanguard has many, many investors who probably represent a cross-section of people in the country. I know that if I had such a small amount saved, I would be petrified. And, in fact, I fear for those who are actually in that position.I do want to point out that I didn't post here to show off or to cause any kind of ruckus. Some of you may know that I recently lost my best friend who posted here at TMF for the entire 14 years that we knew each other. His death has truly ripped me apart and I just don't much have the heart anymore for arguing and fighting, or even defending myself. I'm just so emotionally tired. But I did think that maybe I should continue posting at TMF as we did all those years to maybe help me keep some kind of sanity - to help me save myself from a drowning depression.Investing is interesting to me and I'm retired. That's why I found this board. But I have no great need to always be right or to one-up other people. Maybe my subject title was wrong for this board. But I've always been a straight-forward person who doesn't play games. I generally say exactly what I mean. I did find the article scary. But that doesn't mean I expect everyone else to find it so.Anyway, I'm sorry if I upset anyone. The first response to my post was "Who cares?" So maybe it didn't much matter anyway. :)AM
