DownwardSpiral caught Pixy when he said:

Pixy said, in part:

<<As part of the IRS Restructuring bill, Congress reduced the holding period for long term capital gains rates to 18 months and a day. >>

Are you sure that you didn't mean 12 months & a day?

And a great catch it was! Yes, I did mean 12 months and a day.

Obviously, my brain was disengaged from my fingers when I typed that bone-headed error. I'm glad you found it and are keeping me straight. Lord knows, someone has to before I run amok. :-)
