Print it out, put it in your desk drawer, and hope you never see anything like it again. It's a piece of recent history, and not a pretty one at that. At various times today, I was tempted to make a blog post or two about just how bad the market was, but I was, frankly, speechless. $1 trillion wiped off the US stock market, five bailouts/quasi-bailouts (four of them in Europe), and a $700 billion rescue package dead in the water. And tomorrow is another day. My advice, in the words of W.C. Fields, "Start your day with a smile and get it over with."
