By Harry Jones

(January 13, 1999) -- Got my trade confirmation in the mail today. Irv told me that some folks have been ribbing me for paying a $49 commission. Quite frankly, I didn't realize that $49 was that high until Irv sat down with me and explained that most people pay a lot less. Thinking back on it, I should have done a little more research.

Well, live and learn, I guess. Maybe next time I'll see if Irv can do it for me online. Someday I'll have to look into getting a computer. Don't have the time for it right now, though.
