Of all the man bashing, hysterical columns, this one ranks as one of the worst. 'Anne Letterse' plays fast and loose with numbers (half of 7800 is 3000 ??), trots out hoary old statistics that conceal more than they reveal (women make 80% of what men make), and cites her own personal history of martial and finacial failure without taking personal responsibility for her fate or the fates of her children.

We can do without this type of inflamatory 'journalism'.

I was hoping to read about how women invest too conservatively, how they need to put a portion of their retirement investments into stocks, not passbook savings.

Shame on Motley Fool for running that column.

Very sincerely,

Paul Menten
