For the next week (or two), we’ll be sharing “audition” pieces from folks interested in being new staff writers at Get Rich Slowly. Your job is to let us know what you think of each of these writers. Pay attention, give feedback, and after a couple of weeks we’ll ask which writers you prefer. This article is from Will Crosswell, who says he’s a young guy who’s made some dumb moves financially. But he wants to learn.

Dr. Moshe A. Milevsky, author of Your Money Milestones and tenured finance professor at the Schulich School of Business at York University in Toronto, Canada, had his class perform an exercise at the beginning of his twelve-week undergraduate course on the topic of wealth management. He asked his students to prepare their own personal balance sheet.

As he admits in his book, the financial status of a twenty-something looks much different from somebody in her thirties or forties. Assets are few and far between. And where they exist, they’re minimal. But liabilities include loans, student loans, and even credit card debt.

After the class filled out their personal balance sheets, he asked them to compute their net worth by subtracting their assets from their liabilities. The results were bleak.

He has illuminated the utter unfitness of our police and intelligence chiefs for the supreme power they now wish and propose to award themselves. And he has also accidentally exposed...r bomb in Washington, DC, in September 1976.) Given a choice between protecting American civilians and protecting the client regimes that sponsor and coddle those who murder them, the Bush Administration has taken the second option every time. This seems to me impeachable in the profoundest sense of the term.
