ANOTHER USE FOR THE AMAZON SEARCH
Gary: ‘Thanks for pointing this out. I’ve found it’s a great way to look up cryptic Windows errors in the Microsoft tech support manuals. Not that I mind paying $70-plus bucks for these manuals to use maybe once or twice, but it sure is handy.’
TWO MORE CHARITABLE GIFT FUND OPTIONS
John Bakke: ‘You mentioned the donor-advised charitable trusts at Fidelity, Schwab and Vanguard. I’ve been thinking of setting one up this year, and would prefer Vanguard (where all my investments are) but their $25,000 minimum is out of my range – even though they let you pay it in over two tax years, a little-noticed option. Having done the research, I believe the best one with a $10,000 minimum is actually T. Rowe Price – half the account maintenance fees of Fidelity, plus they have an all-index-fund investment option with low expenses.’
☞ Half the price is hard to beat, as are low-expense funds. I’m with Fidelity because they pioneered this product and were the only ones with it at the time. I get good service and am happy; but if I were starting from scratch, I might well have gone elsewhere. Why pay double?
A NEAT BIT OF PROGRAMMING, IF IT’S TRUE
Then get ready to demand ‘best practices’ in every state in the union: uniform, user-friendly voting machines; an audit trail; polling machine distribution that makes long lines no more likely in poor precincts than in wealthy ones – and so on. You’ve got to question the motives of anyone who would oppose this. Now go click. Don’t miss the part about pressing invisible buttons to assure a 51% win.
