Hey joe!

Since the thread about insurance has been locked, I will respond to two of your comments.

First you say that because of the performance of the stock market the last three years or so my uncle would be worth as much today as he was when it all went in the toilet. It might be true except for the fact that he died in January of 2005. (Three days after my dad). Anyway I did not intend to imply that "half a gazillionaire" was a precise term. He probably did not lose as much as half, but nearly so.

I am not some kind of Architect. I am a licensed Architect in the state of Indiana. I attended Ball State College of Architecture, interned for three years and passed the two day exam. I have been operating my own firm since 1976.

Hey, I don't like paying for Insurance any more than anybody else, but it is there as a safety net and unless you are really big, you cannot afford to operate a business without it. One loss can put you out of business.

Tom W

I thought this was going to be a Jimmy Hendrix thread.

But even if you were really big, would you want to run without it? Might it not be penny wise pound foolish?

"skid row joe" = 240Joe?

Lord - I hope not. Best thing to do is to ignore him and he will go away.

Are they not one and the same? I could be wrong - may be lumping all trolls in w/ 240Joe.

I was thinking he sounded familiar but couldn't figure out which troll he was.

The new guy can spell correctly, therefore it can't be 240 Joe or Gotta Wanker.

That or he has learnt to use "spell check" or "Huked on Fonix" works.

Ya know ... there is a common thread of pugnacious obstinacy.

Joe is insured whether he will admit or not. In the business it's called an SIR - Self Insured Retention. Joe is Self Insured.
