This works as I wish on the CL:
    head -n4 docs/finance/quotes/y_quotes.{csv,bak} |
        awk -F, '{print $1, $2, $6, $7;}'
When I try to put it in an alias I can't get it right and have tried
so many combinations of \s and $() that I'm totally befuddled.
Seven deadly sins:
    Anger, gluttony, envy, sloth, avarice, lust and pride.
I practice most of these so guess I'll die one day.
