The Money Class: Learn to Create Your New American Dream — by Suze Orman

I’ve always trusted Suze Orman’s financial planning advice. She’s sensible and realistic, and those qualities come through stronger than ever in her latest book, The Money Class: Learn to Create Your New American Dream (Spiegel & Grau, $26), which came out last month. The American Dream is over, she argues. Get over it and start planning with this new reality in mind. The entire book is well worth reading by people of any age, with the retirement planning segments (she breaks them down by age categories) particularly strong and relevant to our current financial environment. No nonsense advice, with links to recommended websites, provided in an understandable way.

A Man, a Voice and a Handful of Felt

As the second anniversary celebration of Terry Fator: Ventriloquism in Concert reached its midway point on March 18, Terry Fator put down his puppets to sing his original song “Horses in Heaven,” about a young boy with cancer. It was a rare solemn moment in an evening dedicated to straightforward gags involving handheld people made of felt. The America’s Got Talent winner seemed to enjoy the solo spotlight, almost as if he was trying to prove that he was a legitimate singer who didn’t need to rely on plushy partners.
