    Remember the days of "savings accounts"???


    That's mostly from personal spending choices.....living within one's means. That would of course mean doing without a lot of today's supposed necessities like cell phones, cable, eating out frequently, new cars, week long vacations in a hotel at the beach. Most people that live from paycheck to paycheck don't have a written budget either.

    Anyone who knows this clown and where he is, but does not speak up should go to jail right along with him. Got wigless pics??
