Thank you, Jeffchristie.

It's worth noting that in March, just days before the S&P 500 Index hit its low of 677, Brinker said he believed a lengthy "new bottoming process" would be necessary to put an "end to the bear market."

After the market rallied to the mid-800's in April, Brinker began saying to "buy on weakness" (but he did not say what levels he considered "weakness"). The S&P closed at 907 today.

Memo to DanG: As you know, I was wishing for a photo of you in your thong, but instead I got this in the mail this morning. "Rumor has it that in a former life, this is the way you looked each morning." 8^)
