The Last Sure Thing

My friend Beth is in the Netherlands, looking into rumors that originated from a rogue group of economists who believe that investment markets go through very, very long cycles. Their theory? The next big thing is going to again be Dutch tulips.

It would be irresponsible for me to advise you to move ALL your money into tulips, but I'm pretty excited. I have evaluated my 401(k) and if I move quickly, I still have money enough left to buy 2. Tulips that is.

I just hope this works.

So if I go "Dutch" and purchase Tulips, who pays the other half?

Oh what a thoroughly, thoughtful Thursday it is.

Apropos of absolutely nothing, I'm of Dutch heritage.

Although I use tell people I'm a Hollander or Netherlandish.

I've got a lot of Dutch, too. You got to admire those folks. They build incredible stuff to keep the ocean at bay, and they smoke dope. Maybe we should emulate them. Buy tulips, too.
