In response to:
I appreciated your citation of Riley. "When I was a lad" many, many years ago in Indiana an elderly portly gentleman dressed in a black suit and tie would come to schools ocassionally to recite Riley's poetry (not including the one you cited). His deep voice and delivery were precisely the way I would have imagined Riley himself delivering the works. You bring back fond memories. Incidentally, I agree with you.
It was yet another late selloff for stocks after a session that exhibited resolve but never conviction. The fact is we are now back in one of those trends of waiting for the last hour of trading and buckling up as the small hand hits three and the big hand hits twelve. There are many reasons for this renewed angst, chief among them, the debacle that is European politics and economic woes. Yet, the forces of social justice are such that somehow people that don't work or pay little taxes can punish and berate those that foot most of the bill.
