Intel (I am a shareholder) kind of pisses me off. They have 4.1 BILLION in cash and 7.9 BILLION in short term investments on their balance sheet as of 6-28-2008.

Don't *fudge* with pensions. It appears they have enough cash to cover themselves (for now) in case something happens but I still hate to see good companies playing games like this one.

Parents - absolute *feces* in the 70s, little better in the 80s, largely retired after that.

Me - *feces* until the mid 90s, and ok ever since.

I'm not sure any response would be particularly illuminating.  Each of us goes through an earning-potential metamorphosis, going from nil as children, hopefully a steady upward slope through adulthood, then dipping again and probably staying the decline once retired (and maybe even before retirement, as personal choices and corporate choices combine to marginalize the older worker).

My folks? They had it better 10 or 20 years ago than today.  But that's because ten/twenty years ago, they were both working; today one is retired and the other permanently disabled.

Me?  I'm doing better today than both ten years ago (when I was a student and living off borrowed money) and twenty years ago (when I had no college degree and was delivering pizzas for a living).  Duh.
