NEW YORK ( TheStreet) -- Summer is here and the stock market is sick again. Let's put the patient up on the exam table and perform a brief checkup.The Standard & Poor's 500 is down about 7% since the highs it made at the beginning of April. In Wall Street parlance, a selloff does not officially become a "correction" until the S&P is off by 10%, but this pullback has everyone worried once again that another recession is near.
