I thought this was an interesting (though slightly sleazy) advertising pitch.

High-fee annuity provider Prudential insurance sponsored "The Best of the [Wall Street] Personal Journal" featuring a collection of articles telling readers to (what a coincidence) buy an annuity.

Prudential calls it "The Secret to a happier retirement" -- maybe for the salesman who collects the big commission, but what of the customer? <LOL>
