You stole my line.  Of course, I stole it from Kermit, so I guess it is only fair you stole it from me.

Congratulations on your performance.  Nice stock picking.  Keep up the good work.

I used to be up where you were.  I started out very good when I joined last year, but I got into the metals a little late and didn't get out of the mortgage/banking/REIT sectors early enough, so took some big hits.  I'm surprised the Alcan still shows up in your portfolio, as I thought that the deal with Rio Tinto had already closed, which would have closed your pick.

I am slowly crawling my way back higher in my ranking.  Maybe sometime next year I can rejoin you in that rarified atmosphere of the 99+ rankings.  Good luck in your investing.  May all your picks be winners.
