Jim, you say:
Also I think most of us on this board should have at least 1/3 to 1/2 of your retirement coming from fixed incolme sources anyway - Social Security and pensions for prior employers.

Upon what do you base this statement? With so many people considering themselves highly mobile between jobs, I'm not sure many are expecting much from employer provided plans - particularly pensions (maybe that's why 401k's are so popular, you can take it with you). And, personally, I don't know many folks in their 40's, 30's and, especially, 20's that expect much from Social Security. Personally, the bride and I structure our planning under the assumption that anything from SS is pure gravy.

Though, I must admit, your perspective of income from these other sources representing the "liquidity" of an investment portfolio is an interesting way of looking at it.

Thanks

Ken
