I can't sit at my computer tonight on account of my aching back (the cold) and aching bum (the market).

Yeah, my short positions did not fare well on this 300 point (Dow) *up* day.

I did see two worthwhile stories today.

One, the *bankrupt* New York Times is, like all your Moronic friends over the past few years, taking out a HELOC to *get by*.

And the other was an interesting story in Forbes - How Zell Killed Tribune.

I thought you were predicting an up day with the bailout crap in the pipes and would've planned accordingly.

I'm in SRS and will likely be in SKF soon as well. Looking for an in on GDX. And my SWC is doing nicely.

I predicted an up day after I got short!
