Ok, I'm going to speak up on this. The market is now entered McDonalds
land. The economists don't want to admit their little private playground is
now over run with Joe 6 pack and his Best Buy's PC. What does Joe know
about investing? Squat. What does Joe see when he uses his PC? Amazon,
Yahoo, and others. What does Joe buy?

It's as simple as that. Unless something big happens that causes a panic
that market is going to continue to grow. I said it at 7K and I'll say it
now. The only possible reason fore a reversal is if a Republican gets
elected in 2K. They will within a year trash the economy into a recession
to 1) blame the false economy on the Dems, 2) create job security for their
re-election in 4 years.



I got two turntables and a G3 PowerBook.
