DowDanny:

Thanks for reminding us of our roots!

For reference, I'll trot out Siegel's "Stocks for the 
Long Run."  Looking at the five best-performing stocks 
of the Nifty Fifty for the 25-yr period 1972-1997, we 
have:

Company         Annualized Return
-------         -----------------
Philip Morris    19.9%
Gillette         18.3%
Coca-Cola        17.2%
Pfizer           16.9%
Pepsico          16.7%

Four of those fit DowDanny's criteria.   Hmmmm.  We 
should think hard before dismissing this category!

Fool on,
yotommy

P.S.  I'm long Tootsie Roll (fun to say).
