Jeff Percival: ‘I saw your Parade piece last week, where you pointed out that someone in a tax-deferred plan is taxed on withdrawal as income, but someone not in a plan pays a lower (we hope) capital gains rate. This sounds great, but in thinking about it, I’m not so sure. I always thought that […]
Stephen Gilbert: ‘I thought you just got to wear an Aloha shirt.’

SHAKESPEARE, MY FOOT
John Twomey: ‘You have been snookered by the Caesar quote which has been banging about the Internet. Please see (after West Wing) this link. This site, as I am sure you are aware, is the premier debunker of Internet legends and hoaxes. I would encourage you to vet something […]

Edward: ‘Pepsi has a new patriotic can coming […]
Patrick Cox: ‘Hello. I’ve got a long story, which wouldn’t be very interesting to anyone but you and maybe my wife (she might be just pretending, though). I’ve been reading your investment guide (and most of your other books for that matter) for approximately my entire adult life (10+ years). You may see the influence […]
