We're officially into summer now, past the three-day Memorial Day weekend that serves as the official start of summer — a chance to launch the boat, bring out the picnic basket and play baseball.
But for those of us who watch the financial system, it's difficult to move on into summer without thinking that this is the perfect time to "memorialize" those basic requirements for our free enterprise system to continue to succeed and prosper: a sound currency, the rule of law, fiscal discipline and a reasonable tax structure.

Q: I have had enough with so-called "cozy country kitchens" and all their clutter, dingy old colors and peeling paint. Quaint, it ain't — in my book, at least. Having said that, where do we go for ideas on contemporary kitchen design? We don't have a barrel of money, but we want a kitchen that's both sleek and functional — we're both avid cooks.
