September 11

I decided not to address the issue of 9/11 in today’s Market Commentary. Several of you have asked why, and in brief, I have nothing additional to add on the subject.

Two years ago, I worked for a firm who’s HQ was on the 29th floor of 2 World Trade. I fully detailed the experiences of September 11, 2001 in “A Personal Recollection From a Day of Horror.”

Its still up on my mostly neglected Geocities site, along with a PostScript, which was my Coda to the entire episode, and an explanation of how that piece came to be. (There’s also a several 100 emails from readers posted).

Anyone interested in my perspectives can find a bellyful there . . .
