Last week we had a kind of dense column on variable universal life insurance, largely written by my friend Less Antman and another, also largely by him, that read like a thriller, on Qualified State Tuition Plans.
In each case, I provided a one- or two-word “executive summary” for those of you who might have been running late for work.
“Your executive summaries,” writes Less, “have inspired me to stop wasting my time with time-consuming posts. So instead of spending weeks writing 10 more such pieces, I thought I’d fit them into a single list of 10 executive summaries. That way, you can spend the other 9 days sharing with the readers your balanced and unprejudiced political views.”
Less is a libertarian (see June 5, 1998, “The Trouble with Libertarians”). Instead of contributing to the Democratic National Committee, he has contributed this nifty holiday package of One-Word Hyperlinked Executive Summaries:
