If all of the tribal fiduciaries that I have met who are supposed to be looking out for tribal 401-k assets were truly fiduciaries there would thousands and thousands of Native Americans far better prepared for their retirement.

Mike King is the stand-out writer and if it weren't for Michael Vick coverage and our state, flag waving, booze-loving (only 6 days a week tho) governnor's daily deeds there wouldn't be much to it.
Readers get to call or email the paper every day with some excellent humor and satire. Frankly, the Vent Guy has either gotten much brighter or they replaced him with a Yankee.
Either way, today's best vent was a rant on Georgia and I quote the AJC here, "We are near the bottom in education, tops in lack of health-care, gridlock and foreclosures, yet we re-elected a governor whose big idea is to improve the fishing. No wonder Yankees think we are stupid."

The best way to describe my fear would be to make the analogy that having to rely on a salesman/stockbroker to safeguard retirement money would be like relying on a pothead to safeguard the Fritos. Never forget, those stockbrokers fancy titles are not awarded for achieving investment results; they are for charging fat fees and big commissions.
Next week I have to go to a brokerage office and extricate an account for an elderly widow who is a new client of Chippewa Partners. I should bring an attorney along for what the broker did to this lady over the years. Sickening.
