To the and Exchange Commission,

I worked better than 40 years in jobs that never paid what my labor was
worth but I got by as well as I could. I scrimped and saved and lived
like a pauper in order to have something to retire on. Now you are
going to allow "financial advisers" to be honest or dishonest
with my very hard earned money as they choose. You are saying that if
they steal everything I have stored up, that is just fine. This
reflects on how honest and truthful you are and how much you believe in
JUSTICE. By allowing these people to be crooks, you show us all just
how crooked you can be.

I'm counting on you to make a stronger rule that closes the loophole.
Americans who've worked hard to save for retirement deserve peace of
mind about their financial security.


Mr. Curtis Eckstein
