    Well, so much for the question at the beginning about whether recoveries are getting shorter.

    What a weird flashback. The sponsors – wow! ML was the largest brokerage and Prudential Securities was eventually merged into Wachovia which was then gobbled up by Wells Fargo.

    And the advice they gave was from The Hitch Hiker’s Guide to the Galaxy: “Don’t panic”.

    It took 5 years of electroconvulsive therapy before I finally stopped having nightmares about being chased by Louis Rukeyser’s hair. Now I’m having flashbacks.
