Yes, the show must go on, and I am thinking that there was nothing conclusive about today if anybody asks me. I got hit on a bunch of my bids down 280, but I don't think we are out of the woods.

I will say on the


show that the selling remains incredibly ugly, but that I remain a steadfast buyer. I probably put on another couple million dollars worth of stock in that scary decline below 10,000, and I just traded out of $10 million of the bonds I bought yesterday for a nice gain. That's money that will find its way to the stock market if we penetrate 10,000 on Monday.

All of us wish there were a resolution. The most unnerving thing I can say -- and I have to say it -- was that this session, which looked like it would provide the final washout when we pierced 10,000, didn't even give us that pleasure.

Gotta go get fired up for
