      I hope you weren’t there to buy annuities.

      Did we ever resolve whether these posts are open threads?
      If so, remember how a bit over a year ago a guy tried to kill several hundred people in Vegas and they never told us why, or ever showed a single picture of him during his stay despite casinos having cameras everywhere, and remember how ISIS said he was one of theirs and we were told not to believe it because they totally always do that even though there are roughly zero examples of that?
      In probably more trivial news, isn’t it kind of odd that the feds sent Whitey Bulger to certain death a couple weeks ago?

      Annuities are Ok if you can be reasonably sure you that you will live a long time – lifestyle habits, family and health history, etc – and you don’t want to deal with the complexities of investment portfolios. In one sense, they may be good for your health because you have to stay alive to get your money’s worth. If not, they can be considered another form of insurance.

      Is NY Life actually in NY? D, you came over and never said hello?

    Comments Policy

    Chicago Boyz values reader contributions and invites you to comment as long as you accept a few stipulations:

    1) Chicago Boyz authors tend to share a broad outlook on issues but there is no party or company line. Each of us decides what to write and how to respond to comments on his own posts. Occasionally one or another of us will delete a comment as off-topic, excessively rude or otherwise unproductive. You may think that we deleted your comment unjustly, and you may be right, but it is usually best if you can accept it and move on.

    2) If you post a comment and it doesn't show up it was probably blocked by our spam filter. We batch-delete spam comments, typically in the morning. If you email us promptly at we may be able to retrieve and publish your comment.

    3) You may use common HTML tags (italic, bold, etc.). Please use the "href" tag to post long URLs. The spam filter tends to block comments that contain multiple URLs. If you want to post multiple URLs you should either spread them across multiple comments or email us so that we can make sure that your comment gets posted.

    4) This blog is private property. The First Amendment does not apply. We have no obligation to publish your comments, follow your instructions or indulge your arguments. If you are unwilling to operate within these loose constraints you should probably start your own blog and leave us alone.
