J. Bakke: ‘My retirement account is a shambles. It’s all my fault, of course. It holds Apple (down 69%) AT&T (down 58%) and Barnes&Noble.com (down 71% — yeah, I know, this one’s my fault entirely), among others.

Tom Kabat: ‘I have plenty of experience with the efficient Compact Fluorescent Light Bulbs (CFLs) that you mentioned last week. I’ve used them for about 10 years now and have them in about 30 sockets now at my house. They have really improved over the years, with flicker-free electronic ballasts and warm color rendering. […]

I went to qbsearch.com (a free service in which I own an interest), clicked the engines I wanted to search with (in this case, because it involved shopping, I […]
Jonathan Hochman: ‘Could you write a column about the power emergency in California? All those utilities in California are on the verge of bankruptcy because they have had to pay exorbitant prices for every last megawatt on the wholesale power market. If only they had invested more in conservation programs over the last few years, […]
I know you hate it when I stray from money (or cooking), but I want to say I think President-elect Bush has gotten off to a fine start. I hated the campaign – especially its character assassination of the Vice President, who is a far finer man than even most of those who voted for […]
So many things one could say about the Court and the count and all that. But in the excellent spirit of the Vice President, President and Governor Bush Wednesday night, let’s skip most of that.
