A nice lady called to query one of the daughters about six potential baby-sitting dates. When I told her the daughter was not home, she asked if I would like to write the dates down.

Why I could ... [full story]

I had a combination "Ha, ha, serves you right/wow, that's too bad" moment a few years ago when I heard that Chris Hamill (aka 'Limahl'), former lead singer of '80s British band Kajagoogoo, was working at a London record store.

An elderly woman in my community learned not too long ago that she needed dentures. She had enough money to pay for the new teeth, but she discovered that her funds, while technically hers, couldn't be touched. The bad guy in this pitiful case was an insurance company, which had capitalized on an ingenious way to make money off an easy mark. What the woman with the bad molars had bought was an equity indexed annuity. Promoters ... [full story]

If Jesse James were alive today, he’d be working for America Online, the number one Internet mobster. The Wild West is alive and well in AOL land where the burly outlaw barges through saloon doors, pistols drawn, demanding more and more money, betraying the public trust under the guise of sweet promises. It’s a wonder that Internet users aren’t sitting at their computers with knives embedded in their backs, three letters etched onto the stainless ... [full story]
