    They just upped their stock dividends. Granted, their stock (as will the entire financial segment) will drop for a little bit, but I’m in for the long haul. In another 12 months, it’ll be prime time to buy more of the financial stocks. I’m just waiting for economy to truly tank before buying more.

    @JohnMc: Why avoid the Wachovia credit cards? I have 2 Visas with them and they’ve been very responsive. 1.5% cash back on everything, no limit. Just opened the mailbox today to have a nice $250 cash-back cheque from them. I got hit with the VIP TUNE fraud thing (looks like it might have been smarthome.com which got breached) and they let me keep my card active until my new card arrived the next day. Their concierge service is pretty good too. Not as swift as a good 5-star luxury hotel concierge, but I’m also getting the service free, so I can’t complain, and they do try and make an effort to get it right.

    Has anyone seen my violin? It’s the world’s smallest and I think I dropped it somewhere. I was going to play a song for Wachovia.
