Thank You, Stock Market

I am having a really lousy week, and this is just what I needed.  Down 500 points on the Dow!  As exciting as the flash crash was last year, most of that 1000 point loss was reversed after the actual humans stepped into to stop Skynet from finishing off capitalism.  This is the biggest, best horribleness since March 2009, and as I was focused on driving back and forth to rehab and not running off the road for most of that month, I was only peripherally aware of that spectacle.  This time I’m all up in it.  The FSX is down 10% in just this week, which would suck if it weren’t SO AWESOME.  A ten percent drop over four weeks is soul-crushing, but a ten percent drop over four days is exhilarating.    Thank you Greece, thank you Tea Party crazies, thank you ETF traders, thank you everyone who made this disaster possible.  It’s a good thing Brinkley’s here or I’d have already taken my pants off.
