Ah, so. That makes more sense. In fact (and as Phil pointed out), you could end up with an itemized deduction under the miscellaneous category to the extent it exceeds 2% of your AGI. Still, I would think hard before I closed that IRA. Why restart a five tax-year rule when it isn't necessary? That assumes, of course, that you want to use a Roth IRA in retirement for part-time work income.

..as far as my other investments go... which I manage myself... I still am a dyed in the wool MI'er...so I certainly can not be accused of cutting and running..

That also makes me feel better. I'm sure you're aware some folks tend to give up when an investment heads South. I apologize for thinking you fell in that category, and I'm sincerely glad you don't.
