How Now Dow

Stocks are up – then down
My head begins to pound
Eyes are hot and blurry
My mouth all dry and furry.
Dr. Greenspan, help me please!
I think I have Mad Dow Disease.

I wrote this piece some time back and it was first published in the Saturday Evening Post. As much as things change...a volatile Dow has become a way of life.

I only wish our current crisis was funny. I do appreciate the humor though. Maude knows I'm ready to scream.

I love the idea behind this. It's whatever you want it to be: deep, amusing, prophetic, moving, clever... Great!

Loved the humour in that. And we certainly need some cheer at the moment.
