Where have you gone Joe Dimaggio?

So its been about 8 weeks since I posted anything. Let's recap what has happened in the markets:
1. Banks are struggling to stay solvent.
2. Home sales keep dropping.
3. Non-financial earnings holding steady.
4. Commodity prices soaring.

Gee, same news from last year, but what's different? Perception. Last year we saw this as a short term blip. Now, all the pundits are calling for a "New Deal" type of legislation to shore up the system. If you let the free market react, we will wipe out the non-performers, while letiing the stronger players survive. This happens every decade and will continue in the future.

Still bullish, see new highs by end of year.
