…”financial therapy”, that is. it may not be too far of a stretch to imagine that in the near future, we will discover the economy is much worse than anyone currently believes. an ap article sums up concerns over potential erosion of some parents’ financial freedom as they assist their near-senior age children struggling from financially-related constraints: poor credit, layoffs, divorce, etc.

despite t.v. commercial depictions of retirement-age folks seeming happy and ready to realize their dreams (big dreams, little dreams, crazy dreams), reality is pointing its finger at something much more somber and sobering. where’s dennis hopper???

    Every time I see that commercial I just want to slap Dennis Hopper silly. The only people I know who are going to be retiring at all are the ones who were smart enough to get government gigs 30 years ago and will have pensions. The rest of us will have to keep working until some years after death to break even, 401K’s notwithstanding.
