National Save for Retirement Week

In the mail, self’s latest IRA statement from Morgan Stanley.  Percent change from last statement is negative, naturally.  A huge negative.  Inserted with the statement is a most helpful brochure entitled “Achieving the Retirement You Imagine.”  And, in a sidebar, this helpful bit of information:

Congress has designated the week of October 19-25 as “National Save for Retirement Week” to encourage all Americans to create or reassess their retirement savings strategies.

You may make of that what you will, dear blog reader.
