I’ll Buy That for a Dollar!

OK, not bad. The $NDX is up 0.39%, the $RUT is up 0.19%, and the Dow is down 0.13%, but my portfolio is up 1.21%. I like it. It makes me feel good when a purely bearish portfolio has a great day even in the face of green. Good! That shows these picks are sound.

I'm starting to feel (and blog) like my old self again. It's nice to be back. I'll probably do another post later. Adios, amigos.

Ed Tom Bell: The crime you see now, it's hard to even take its measure. It's not
that I'm afraid of it. I always knew you had to be willing to die to
even do this job. But, I don't want to push my chips forward and go out
and meet something I don't understand. A man would have to put his soul
at hazard. He'd have to say, "O.K., I'll be part of this world."


Wendell:
We goin' in?

Ed Tom Bell:
Gun out and up.

Wendell:
[Wendell draws his pistol] What about yours?

Ed Tom Bell:
I'm hidin' behind you.


Ellis:
Whatcha got ain't nothin new. This country's hard on people, you can't
stop what's coming, it ain't all waiting on you. That's vanity.
