“40 Friends” The truth is, I don’t actually have 40 friends in my immediate community.
I’m going to come right out and say it: Anyone can become a millionaire in America today. And when I say anyone, I mean anyone—that means you, too.
Lost and overwhelmed Dear Dave,
Survey time. Raise your hand if you understand the concept of “autonomy.” Raise your hand if you value setting your own schedule, affirming your own beliefs, blazing your own trail, and other colloquialisms to that effect.

Chocolate or vanilla? Following up on my column from last week, this week I chose to expound on my treatise, and use ice cream as my analogy. I promise, this is it for election coverage for a while. 100 years ago, those were likely the only choices we had if we chose to eat ice cream to cool and...
