Mmm ... Irony

I do loves me the poppin' fresh irony.

For instance: This week, we have an institution named "Flushing Financial Corporation," located in "Lake Success, New York" tapping the TARP for $70 million.

Now, I know what you're thinking. You're thinking:

Man, someone has to be making this stuff up. Flushing Financial? Lake Success?

Alas ... 'tis no "making up" going on here.

Here's the pdf: Merry Christmas, Baby (Banking Edition)

And the Treasury's press release: More Salvation Army Efforts (for Banks)

Thoughts on my personal finances, goals, experiences, motivations, and accomplishments (or lack thereof).

My financial life began turning around when I took responsibility for it.
