Good article.

 
Basically says if you're withdrawing 5% and took a 30-40% hit in your portfolio, you are F'd.  Game over.
 
Should be good to show to disturb prospects.

It's plenty disturbing to my clients.

Not sure how it would help me with prospects: 'As you can see here, Mr. and Mrs. Prospect, the strategy I use to help you retire safely does not appear to work.'

That's pretty funny.  Let me know how it works.
 
Although, if you use alternative investments or annuities, you might have some ground to stand on.
