Signs Of The Times

A friend e-mailed me the following:

"If you had purchased $1,000 of AIG stock one year ago, you would have $42 left. With Lehman, you would have $6.60 left.  With Fannie or Freddie, you would have less than $5 left.  But if you had purchased $1,000 worth of beer one year ago, drank all of the beer, then turned in the cans for the aluminum recycling REFUND, you would have $214.  Based on the above, the best current investment advice is to drink heavily and recycle.  It's called the 401-Keg program."

HaHa!  True.  Depressing, but true.
