But in some parts of our life — such as investing — assumptions can prove dangerous.

Regarding the letter to the editor: “Can you just ask for a 6 percent raise?”
Admittedly, it is a little early to start talking about Christmas; Halloween is barely a week away, and Thanksgiving still awaits in the middle of the holiday sandwich.
