I was always fond of Sam Waltons response after the big crash of '87. When a bubbleheaded reporter remarked that he had lost a fortune in this crash and asked him how he felt about that he replied that he had lost NOTHING. He still owned his shares and had full faith that in the long run Wally world would dominate. And he was right. I suspect great companies are going to be here in the long run, and most if not all of our capital will be there for us.>>>>

Funny; I remember reading almost the same statement on the Enron Board last year.

Yeah, but Ken Lay is no Sam Walton. <grin>
