Come on everybody, let's do the Mario

The DOW topped 10K today (briefly). Not bad for me and you (if you're smart enough to have bought heartily over the past year and a half). My money man reminded me via email that I should be making contributions to my Roth IRA, which I'd love to do except for 1)I can't afford to at all and 2)I don't have an IRA. I have all the paperwork for it sitting on my desk for a year now and haven't gone through the trouble because of 1) and 3)I don't have the time to go down there and set one up. Sad but at least temporarily true.

My day got a little sadder to learn that Captain Lou Albano died today. He was something close to 80, which for a wrestler is Methuselan. I'd put a couple of rubber bands in my hair if I still had a goatee long enough. Does anyone remember the theme song from the Super Mario Brothers Super Show?
