Numb
Wednesday, April 1, 1998
by David Gardner (DavidG@fool.com)

ALEXANDRIA, VA (April 1, 1998) -- By now, if you haven't already read our open letter, I hope you'll take the time to do so. We're still mum -- rather, I really mean numb -- about the whole thing, so I pretty much haven't paid attention to the market today. What happened to our stocks? You can see the numbers adjoining this report. Whatever.

Given the discovery revealed in our letter, you should absolutely go on to read the much more significant news: Namely, we have revised our Fool's School to feature Our New 13 Steps to Investing Foolishly -- a dramatic revision, containing some hugely important (and, I would argue, controversial) changes.

Till tomorrow.
