Good morning, Hak.....I agree with your comments about the market and politics. It's disheartening most days to see the markets so incredibly volatile. BCSI has been on a roller-coaster like no other. Can't wait to see their earnings next week; please let them be decent! Some of the stocks I'm holding have 10% swings for no other reason (that I can find) than market conditions. As for politicians, well, they are out in masses since we'll be voting next year. I've been watching the debates and my opinion of the Republican candidates changes from week to week. It's fairly early though. Every candidate appears to be self destructing, one by one. In fact, we seem to be in global melt down mode...I just read that Italy might need to exit the Eurozone and revert to their own currency. What's next? At least with hopes for new leaders in both Italy and Greece, our markets should be green today. I hope. <br /> <br /> Have a wonderful weekend, Hak... TGIF!
