I know I'm not Mr. Financial News, but just now I noticed that the Dow Jones is down. Down low. Down so low it's not only back where it was in 2003, it's down as low as it was in 2002, and as it was soon after 9/11. It's even as low as it was in 1998 - 10 years ago. If that doesn't quite make sense, you can look at a chart of the Dow over time and see that it goes up, it goes down. It tanked after 9/11, for instance. It just has never dived so far, so fast. And it never quite affected me and everyone I know before.
