School of Soft Knocks is behind you
By Byron McNutt

THE STRAINS OF “Pomp and Circumstance” have faded away. The rental company has your cap and gown back. Your graduation gift money is already gone. Now what do you do?

Congratulations, graduates. Welcome to the real world. To aid you in your entry, here’s some more sage advice compiled by Wes Smith of the Chicago Tribune. The advice is sage because it was shared by Smith in June 1986. Post it on the front of your refrigerator.
1.?They aren’t kidding when they say, “Wash whites separately.” 2.?The rate of interest is what kills you, not the down payment. 3.?Never answer an ad seeking a “liberal roommate.” You probably aren’t that liberal.
