It's just a tripwire we've picked to begin thinking about sweeping a little more cash out of the portfolio. In this case it doesn't have any more significance than that.

Uh, being a Nam vet, I know what a tripwire signifies ...

Often it's not a good thing (bouncing Betty's and all that)...

But hey, if it works in your life, that's all that matters...
