(April 16, 1999) -- Irv was awake until almost midnight trying to file his taxes on the computer last night. Finally he was able to make it work. He didn't bother to eat his chicken for dinner. We think he will eat it tonight.

I didn't tease Irv about his taxes while we worked today, because I know the computer is important to him. But it reminds me that the old-fashioned way of doing things works just as well, if not better, much of the time. So here's to a weekend away from Irv.

The S&P 500 declined on Friday and fell over 2% this week.
