I concur with this as well, but... at what point does continuing to save
funds for "leaner times" become ridiculous. When we have $50,000 in our
treasury? When we have $100,000? When we have $1,000,000? I fear that we are
well out of lean times and may be to the point of amassing funds simply for
the sake of amassing funds "just in case". I can see maintaining a buffer
zone, but my personal opinion is that we are well past that buffer zone.
