Jeez. Heartbroken about Glenn. Let us know if his family sets up donations for a cause he supported.

And Rebecca, take time to grieve. Your readers arent going anywhere. Take whatever time you need. Death creates so many things to do, right when it’s hardest to do anything.

Please let Glen’s family know they do not grieve alone.

I’m lighting a candle for him now.

Get a Roth IRA and put it all into QQQ. Then put in as much as you can afford monthly. You are still young enough to save up a good nest egg. The advantage to putting in money every month is twofold. First, you always buy more when the price is low and less when the price is high. So you want to price to stay low the whole time you are buying and then go through the roof when it's time to sell. The second and best advantage is psychological. As the months roll by you will see your investment grow exponentially and you will be motivated to fully fund it every year. The reason I recommend a Roth is withdrawals are tax free because the initial investment is taxed. You can't write it off, but, all the gains are tax free which is a HUGE advantage. But harder initially. I think the Roth was a Republican idea, if so it's the one good thing they ever did for the middle class. Don't tell anyone I said that though.

In the immortal words of Woodrow F Call, the best thing to do with death is to ride away from it. If that offends you I am sorry.

I have never wanted to take a cruise. I could not imagine being sequestered with people not of my choosing. I do love the water and enjoy a good boat ride, but a cruise has always made me think less of those I know who go on them. Even high class river cruises advertised on PBS make me choke a bit. Just because there are fewer people on board doesn't change my mind. The Atlantic article by Gary Shteyngart above (7k people on a boat???) is amazingly deep and funny and says so much about our society today. It's pretty fucking sad.

What was the motive behind planting the evidence? To teach him a lesson for not respecting their authori-tah? At least the cop cams are working the way they’re supposed to: weed out corrupt AND stupid cops.
