Darryl, I have nothing but respect for you. You know that. We can agree to disagree.

See, I wouldn't have any problem not taking that account. Because I know for sure a different weekly account would fill that same slot soon, earning me $1800 a year. It's like fishing. If the fish are biting and you only have a certain limit of fish to catch, you just keep the big ones and throw back the small ones, even though the small ones are good eatin' too. Now, if you're in an area where the fish ain't biting (or maybe you're using the wrong bait) I guess you gotta take whatever you can catch.
