re: "Estate" Planning: 75 yr old father & his mortgage - Ace Midnight

[quote]Its a single win until the offspring proves itself worthy [/quote] I agree if we're using current, real world examples - but from an evolutionary standpoint, it's a win - you want those genes out there. If Gen 1 doesn't succeed, maybe HIS offspring will do better - your genes survive, ...
