Padinha's right about the economy. It is incredibly strong. But these numbers this morning are right, too. There is no inflation. And bonds, after they finish digesting the billions upon billions of issues, will explode to 5%, and we will move higher.

I can't take it anymore. I have to jump up and down about these inflation numbers. We have better inflation numbers than the Japanese, and they have Hoover-like growth. Where are the champions of this darn economy away from

Greenspan

?! These were remarkable numbers for us, especially for those who traded during the

Carter

and

Reagan

years when these numbers used to send us to

Telerate

and then to whack bids for our bonds.

Can you believe it?

OK, had to say something. Back to the foxhole.
