The Shell Game

On a different subject altogether; I used to watch our finances, as they related to the DJIA, on a daily basis. I have an Excel spreadsheet to chart the advances and sometimes the declines in the stock market. I don't bother doing that anymore. I haven't looked in days. Why bother? OK, I know, I know…I should be grateful that I have something to watch, even if it is going down in value. After all, we knew it was a gamble, right? No; that wasn't how it was sold to us. I remember the word 'security' being tossed around during those early days of investing. Hucksters in 3-piece suits and we fell for it.
