It’s hard not to be depressed about the anvil drops on the stock market. Many of us have lost about 10 percent of our intended retirement nest eggs in the space of only a few days. However, my grandmother said every cloud has a silver lining, and I always have tried to follow my grandmother’s wise advice. So, here is my attempt to come up with some positive thoughts about the recent performance of the stock market:
* It’s knocked the stories about the Ohio State football program off the front page
* I’ve been told that gray hairs make me look distinguished
* I probably won’t like eating dinner at 4:30 p.m. until I’m in my 80s, anyway
* Hey, maybe now people won’t think I’m “wealthy” and want to increase my taxes!
