I’m not familiar with Scores.  And if it is what I think it is, I’m not about to do a Google search on it while I’m at work.  I’ll just let my imagination run.

That’s okay Spiff, I did it for you.  Its awesome…I’m still waiting on a call from home office to tell me not to google porn.  …Still…waiting…

You are correct.

It is(or at least was) Howard Stern’s favorite ‘gentleman’s bar’ in Manhattan.

I’d like to add one thing to whatever one is already pretty much saying… (and I’m not even an FA) - pretty much anyone is capable of investing for themselves, and there are resources out there for them to do it.

From law school, my most favorite line - "A man who has himself for a lawyer has a fool for a client."

Sure you can represent yourself - it’s allowable and cheap. But it doesn’t guarantee you the perspective of someone else more seasoned in the field. Anyone can go pick up a few books and learn about what elements are required to prove murder - but it’s the seasoned criminal attorney who can tell you when you need to cop a plea, how you select a jury, who to put on the stand, etc.

Having someone else as an advocate allows for a different perspective, and that is never a bad thing.

The title of this thread just irritates me… It makes me blood pressure rise just a bit.

[/quote]   Cute Joe.. I would be happy to look at the responses under the subject I listed but it seems no one on the forum cares to join in my post.. So instead I have to re-read posts from annoying people with subjects titled.. Are we really Necessary.. ha ha ha..   Love you too. Joe..   Hope you all have a nice weekend.   Miss J

Miss J - I think the problem with your thread is that you asked for EXPERT advice on what that ruling means.  I think we’re all struggling with the same question you are.  And I don’t think there are any real EXPERTS on 401K plans on this forum.

   [/quote] I think we should have several people on this forum that are experts on 401K's. Heck most at ML are.. Likely most that are experts aren't wasting their time on this forum and are working.. Over the weekend I have taken time to read up on this subject and now have a better uderstanding.. Thanks for the imput.   Miss J   ** Still love you too Spiff.
