Re: Doogie Howser

Yeah, he's come a LONG way since Doogie Howser. We've all got to start somewhere. He's hilarious. He's got a very deadpan delivery style, actually not unlike Ellen Degeneres's. And he's not afraid of any role, obviously, no matter how bizarre. He had [more]

Re: Not the endorsement he wanted

I have the Dixie Chicks album that has "Wide Open Spaces" on it. Love every single song on it. They have a wonderful sound, sort of half blues half harmony, and the songs have good words as well. I was glad they didn't back down, even to [more]

FAFSA

At what point is it pointless for a high dual-income couple to ignore filing the FAFSA? I'm also a little worried about the site's security.

Re: Lots of 'o's in those balloons

Good times, pasta salad! I turned 50 yesterday but have twins starting college in the fall so retirement will wait until they finish. Plus another 5 years will give us a bulletproof cushion. DD also has dreams of medical school. We may or may not be [more]

Re: Poll: CC tuition

What metrochick said. Around 1/3 of the software development at my previous job were H1 visa employees. Told my kids to NOT study computer science because it's causing wage deflation and fewer jobs. It's Mitts dream of outsourced America.

Re: Europe on sale!

You want to look less American?
1. Wear nice hard soled leather walking shoes, not tennis shoes. They're better on the cobblestones too! Think Merrils or hiking boots. Tennis shoes are a dead giveaway.

2. Button up shirts not Tshirts. [more]

Nah about $120 a year to manage some college 529s and Roth iras. About 5% of our net. Maybe she said if they didn't index. I like keeping her around to bounce ideas off of and sanity check stuff off the Fool ;). She has pushed us more into Roths for [more]

Re: Traditional 401k vs. Roth 401k

In the end, that sounds like a reasonable approach. Are you also saving some for retirement outside of these tax-favored accounts?

Re: Mitt and the 1%

Or perhaps you didn't notice that you are posting a link from 2013?

Or that it's a link to the conservative "Christian Science Monitor".

No bias there...probably polled their own readership.
