An Interview with jtallenmd

The Fool:
What's the best product you use that most people don't know about?
jtallenmd:
Cinnamint toothpaste by Tom's of Maine
The Fool:
In what way would society be different if bears had become the dominant sentient species?
jtallenmd:
That's an interesting question, but one that leads to useless speculation since that is not what happened.
The Fool:
To what extent has your financial success, or lack thereof, been the result of luck versus skill?
jtallenmd:
That's hard to say. I think it has been a mix of both. I have tried to buy good companies that had good products and have done well with those, but I have also picked some real losers.
