Still hanging on as the wings shake and the engines drop off and the nose gyrates wildly up and down. I had always hoped to experience an honest-to-God bear market, and I guess I'm getting my wish. The markets and I apparently don't agree about much at the moment, and disagreement with judgement (any judgement) takes patience and a certain measure of humility. LIFE'S TOO SHORT TO WORRY ABOUT THE MARKET, say the big Skytrain station ads touting index funds, or "index-protected notes" or such similarly silly products. STOP THE MARKET, I WANT TO GET OFF. Frowning -- "thoughtful"! -- middle-aged faces shot in extreme close-up: the H.R. manager, the liberal studies prof, the accounts receivable supervisor. Take my money, please, and my worries while you're at it. I just want something safe, that goes up and up and up. Not this.
