|The Fool:||What's the most overrated idea, person, or event in our culture?|
|hardy:||The government can solve my problems - and it has the time, fairness, and know-how to solve the problems of the 250 million other people...|
|The Fool:||What, in your opinion, are some of life's big mysteries?|
|hardy:||The Fatal Conceit that some folks in government have when they think they know whats best for other people.|
|The Fool:||What's been your best investment to date, and how did you discover it?|
|hardy:||my wife - but that sounds kind of mercenary. She's the best thing that's ever happened to me - but monetarily-wise, the best investment I ever made was going to college and getting a BS. I applied on a whim!|
|The Fool:||Do you have a favorite company or stock which the worldwide Foolish community should know about -- and why?|
how embarrassing to have to change this one after 5 years. AMAT it was, but alas no longer.
I don't have a favorite stock anymore, can't afford that much risk to concentrate on any one company.
My real favorite stock I can't tell you about because I work there.
|The Fool:||List some of your favorite websites, with running commentary where appropriate. (Please provide the URLs, too.)|
|hardy:||quote.yahoo.com - STILL has better stock info than TMF. (AHEM!)<BR>www.cnn.com - best variety of news around, though they slant the news pretty heavily to their editorial bias|
