On 02-08-2007.
Insurance is one given for many throughout their everyday lives. For example, if you take out one mortgage, you will pay to insure your property; but renters aren't required to take out renter's insurance -- to protect their belongings in case of catastrophe.
The insurance information institute reports 43% of all renters do not have renter's insurance. Billie Rasmussen and Erick Hartman didn't have insurance when ...

Q My wife has brought home one device to replace her car's regular emergency-jumper cables. The device connects from her car's cigarette lighter to the cigarette lighter of one Good Samaritan's car. Are these things safe?
