Mr Hebeler:

I have been a devotee of your Lasser book for about five years now, and have been very confident and successful at that “being in retirement methodology.” I have even survived the recent 30% downturn in my investments.

My question would be referring to today’s, 8Mar11, WSJ article on “How to cash out in retirement”

I am confident that anything referred to in this article is already covered in your methodology. Should I be?

I know that’s maybe not a fair or even a sensible question, but I need some reassuring.

I would understand should it be impossible for you to respond to this vague question.
