OK Guys and Gals........I just got the following email......thought you might enjoy it!

Subject: Economic Update

If you had purchased $1,000.00 of Delta Air Lines stock one year ago you would have $49.00 left.

With Enron, you would have had $16.50 left of the original $1,000.00.

With WorldCom, you would have had less than $5.00 left.

      But, if you had purchased $1,000.00 worth of beer one year ago, drank all of the beer, then turned in the cans for the aluminum recycling REFUND, you would have $214.00 cash.

      Based on the above, the best current investment advice is to drink
heavily and recycle. It's called the 401-Keg.

      A recent study found the average American walks about 900 miles a year. Another study found Americans drink, on the average, 22 gallons of alcohol a year. That means, on average, Americans get about 41 miles to the gallon.

Makes You Proud To Be An American doesn't it!

Best quote so far from a hedge fund manager:

* "This is worse than a divorce, I've lost half my net worth and I still
have a wife",

I guess it is circulating in several forms and they all hit home these days. I like the "401-Keg" variation in Ken's post.  propeller
