So, Brooke, you see smaller advisors as detritus. That sure doesn’t leave me with a warm, fuzzy feeling about how you view the general population of RIAs..

Certain that the author of this article needs no backup for the first comment… I think it is safe to assume that the term “detritus” was most assuredly penned in the vein of The Honorable Judge Smails… et al of the Bushwood crowd from Caddyshack. I believe Spaulding said it best…“Ahoy Polloi!” Thanks for another great article… Well done.
