6/14    I'm trying to set up my retirement funds to invest entirely into
        one of these Target Retirement funds (where you just set it and
        forget it, essentially). I'm a UC employee so I have the option to
        invest in a UC Pathways 20xx fund (where xx=retirement year), but
        since it's all via Fidelity, I have access to Fidelity Freedom
        Funds. Any recommendations on which to use? Anyone recommend the
        UC pathways fund? Thanks.

6/14    Don't look now, but it looks like Iraq actually is turning a corner: (The Economist)
        \_ Your tinyurl is broken
        \_ Insert troll here.
        \_ 10,000 US casualties, 100,000 Iraqi civilian death, hundreds of
           billions later, totally worth it.  Let's do Iran next.
           \_ 10k casualties?  If you mean casualty = dead, then no, that's
              about 4k.  If you mean casualty = injured, the number is way
              higher.  If you're going to spew you should get it right.
              \_ Two questions: what's the cost of paying for our maimed
                 soldiers for the next 5 decades, and are they getting
                 adaquate care?
                 \_ Answer: a lot and no probably not.  Which has nothing to
                    do with what I said which is, "get your numbers right if
                    you've going to post numbers".
              \_ Yeah, the numbers are more like 40k, 400k and $2T, right?
                 \_ Depends on the definition of casualty, as I said.  You
                    can't count numbers of things if you don't know what it
                    is you're counting.  I learned this in 1st grade.
