Small World-Ben Stein version

I was watching a show on C-Span recently with Ben Stein and he made a statement about when he went to HS in Silver Spring, MD. That must have been an interesting senior class trip.

I looked it up and her is the interesting note:

Stein's high school classmates include Carl Bernstein, Connie Chung, Goldie Hawn, and Sylvester Stallone.

We've got an interesting school down in the bay area. The football team features Joe Montana's son competing with Wayne Gretzky's son for quarterback. They're throwing passes to Will Smith's son.

Gretzky says he loves going to the games because everyone swarms Montana and Smith and in all the excitement nobody notices him.
Be fearful when others are greedy, and greedy when others are fearful. Just another form of "buy low, sell high" for those who have trouble with things. This rule is not universal. Do not buy a 1973 Pinto because everyone else is afraid of it.
