I'm sorry I spoke prematurely. Looks like the professional stock traders jumped in during the last hour and drove the DJIA up 500 points today.

Is it time for the all the pessimists to start shorting the market?

One can always hope that there might be some substance finally coming out. Certainly the numbers today reflect a bet that we might do something right.

Now if we can get the rest of the Admin and White House to zip the lips on economy bashing and likening CEOs to terrorists and the like, maybe we can stabilize.

Now THAT would be change I could believe in! ( Sad statement when all your praying for is a STOP to the hemorrhaging)

I have this bad feeling that as the "plan" emerges about this supposed partnership with private enterprise our DOW will not be as continue wagging its tail like today. After betraying,, destroying and demonizing us and all companies and execs at every opportunity, who will trust this Admin to not betray us,...again? The Goose might stay in hiding to save its neck.

Don't miss out on the discussion!

Palo Alto Weekly Holiday Fund

For the last 23 years, the Palo Alto Weekly Holiday Fund has given away more than $4 million to local nonprofits serving children and families.
