Re: Full Disclosure

Outrage is sweeping the nation over the wretched pittance on which the Derbs

are obliged to subsist. Before you mail off the food parcel, though, just a

couple more notes. 1–I socked away a fair amount in investments during my

years as a Wall St worker bee, and this bundle is growing away quietly in

the background. 2–We’re debt-free: no mortgage, no car payments, no

credit card balances. We operate a cash economy. 3–Got another book under

way. 4–I am daily, hourly, deeply and fundamentally happy, and consider

myself an extremely lucky guy. When people sign off e-mails with “God bless

you” (which, God bless *them*!, they frequently do), I e-mail back: “He

already has.”
