If you're traveling from out of town, be sure to book your rooms at the Westin on Michigan Avenue before Wednesday, October 28, 2009. That's the last day to take advantage of Ms. JD's discount (roughly 40% off). 



I can’t begrudge that I am one of those thousand people who are running in unwise loaning. Cash advance lenders and the cash advance lending practice gets pilloried all the time. It’s kind of unfair, and not the brightest move in the world – how many bankruptcy filings mention outstanding cash advance loans, and then how many mention credit cards? (Credit cards lead, far and away – but that would be rational thought, which isn’t allowed.) A cash advance isn’t a new practice – similar loans have been made for centuries. Whether you call it a cash advance, an installment loan, or a short term loan, it’s simply a form of short term credit that’s intended to be used sparingly, only for emergencies, and when used properly is more convenient than banks and less hassle than credit cards.
