'All-Star Wonder Woman' would get worked on in what is laughably referred to as my 'spare time.' I just ended up with less and less time to devote to it.

Mary Stuart Masterson

A deep cynicism is taking hold of the country, with more and more Americans convinced that big money calls the shots in Washington and that there is nothing that can be done about it. We must resist that conclusion and fight back on behalf of everyday citizens. Reform is possible, and it is imperative.
The philosophy to 'buy and hold' is a philosophy that I use to manage funds.
For a variety of reasons, I have always felt myself an outsider. I don't know how to classify myself in economics. I am a loner.
