I saw this in the paper today also. I was about to start a thread about it. You guys are quick.

Calculations should be based on total return, not income return. One of the more flexible retirement income calculators on the web is In addition to allowing a variety of asset classes, it can also factor in the impact of management expenses, different starting times for Social Security benefits, possible increases or decreases in future spending, etc. The calculator is free, but donations help keep it running.
