I haven't looked at my 401(k) since June... simply because I'm afraid to do that. Sometimes ignorance really IS bliss.
My 401(k) survived 1987 and all the subsequent recessions pretty nicely but it got the Hell beat out of it during 2000's dot-bomb implosion (bein' a techie I was heavy in tech). I never really recovered from that debacle, what with losing about half of what I had put away. Still and even, we made a little progress since the turn o' the century, at least until THIS thing came along. It's likely I won't recover from this beating... late-life recessions suck, and mightily so.
