Do you know who is the prolocutor star of Louis Vuitton Handags now? It is the Sofia Coppola, she is well-know with the director of movies. Of course she like the LV very much ,especial the Louis Vuitton Wallet,but she never buy something from the Louis Vuitton Outlet, because she always get freely and show the newest louis vuitton items .

No Obama, Corzine, Reid, Pelosi, Geithner, and Bernake. They are all part of the plot to ruin the USA.

I hate to say I agree with ilm9p and Artie. I do tend to stare at her legs when she's on and do we need another simplistic personal finance book stating obvious platitudes that really doesn't give us any new insights.

I usually don't pay attention to what this broad is babbling about, I just stare at her thighs.

Just what we need, another simplistic personal financial book filled with what should be the obvious and a bunch of platitudes. Hasn't Jean Chatzky covered this ground dozens of times already, in similar books? I guess she needs the money.
