Roy,Congrats, and it's definitely good to know that our rails are holding up!That said, I think the past two years have been an aberration -- and will appear that way, in the lens of history -- thus, I don't think that technology and other sectors in opposition to the "old economy" (like rails) are "dead." I just think they were overhyped.So all that said, I think the world-class companies (some of whom are tech-based) that make up the Fool 50 may have, as it were, the last laugh, once the last laugh is had. And I think the general rules about buying companies that have growing earnings and sales will work. At the present, though, in the midst of a growling bear market, all the traditional "rules" seem not to work, and buying companies that offer the most growth prospects is way, WAY out of fashion. But fashion changes rapidly, and may, again.Thanks for your wonderful, long-term contributions to the Fool!Very best,David Gardner
