Always someone disappointed. Always an opportunity created. That's how it's been for all but one or two of these


cuts, and this one is no different.

To me, it is an opportunity to pick -- and to buy on the way down.

It is the big, bad event that is out of the way, and now we can breathe deep and pick at the wreckage created by someone greedier than we are, who is on more of a hair trigger.

There's nothing more to this and nothing less. It's just an opportunity to bid for stuff that's coming in.

Because it isn't all that bad.
