Short But Sweet...



December 02, 2009 – Comments (4)

I've written a few quick articles for in the last couple days. Some of you may have noticed I'm not exactly known for my brevity (I can't even imagine the whole Twitter word limit thing...). However, sometimes short and sweet is great, especially to spark conversation amongst Fools, and a couple of these seemed like interesting topics folks might want to talk about.

Credit card inactivity fees? Use That Credit Card -- Or Else! (I have to wonder if some folks are going to avoid the inactivity fees by charging up pitchforks and torches... oh, just kidding. They'll probably just cancel their accounts as a few Foolish readers have already alluded to.)

Net Neutrality and Free Speech: I find net neutrality to be one of the more intellectually difficult regulatory issues, personally. I can see both sides. And anything that even seems like it could hamper freedom of speech does bug me. Anyway, what do you think of the comparison to Chinese Internet censorship?

The Christmas Price Index is quite seasonal and fun to think about every year: A Pricey Partridge in a Pear Tree.

Oh and by the way, it's annual Foolanthropy time. If you guys aren't already aware, for every blog post and comment (on and on the CAPS blogs) during the campaign (from now until Jan. 8), the Fool will kick in $0.10 to the campaign pledge (up to $20,000). Another good reason for some robust conversation. :)

Dangalicious, I like the word dangalicious. :) (It is a lot of dimes!)


Thank you. :)


I'm not sure how to answer these questions, ha! I think the one I'm certain of may be Snickers, but then again spuds are a very nourishing food... (and thanks for the rec and the comment!)
