Kudos from (and to) retirement planning blogster

April 14, 2009

I just found this little nugget in my in-box:

Bill Singer's Broke and Broker Blog added to our blog roll

Much of what's out there on blogs is pretty vanilla at best. Except for those individuals that combine their expertise with a definite point of view.

It makes for interesting reading and provides context for what's going on in their particular field - and sometimes in the larger picture of the economy and business environment.

And that's been the criteria for adding blogs to our blog roll. So here's one more. It's Bill Singer's Broke and Broker Blog, the tag line of which is An irreverent Wall Street Blog. Spot-on!

Bill is a securities industry attorney who advocates on behalf of small- and mid-sized broker-dealers, registered persons, whistleblowers, and defrauded public investor. And yes, he does have a P.O.V. Bill also publishes the legal/regulatory/compliance site of RRBDLaw.com.

And now here's full disclosure. Bill has just recently included us as a featured blog on Broke and Broker. But honestly, we would have added him even if he hadn't featured us. And here's just one reason why: one of last's week's posts, Blowin' in the Wind: The Art of Stock Market Forecasting. P.O.V. indeed.

To return the compliment, please visit http://www.brokeandbroker.com/blogs.html and look for Jerry Kalish's The Retirement Plan Blog (information and insight for retirement plan sponsors and their advisors), published by National Benefit Services, Inc. If you are involved in any aspect of retirement planning, this is a must-bookmark site. Solid,  useful information -- and often leavened with some wry and comical commentary.  I mean, come on now, you just gotta love a blogster who punctuates his commentary on commonsense and retirement planning with this wonderful photo:

Jerry -- thanks for the kind words on your blog, and welcome aboard on mine!  Let's just hope that we can get "them" before they get us.
