Hurricane Sandy

When the threat of disaster is heightened
For the Wall Street or media titan,
He may well reflect
On its fiscal effect,
But more likely will simply be frightened.

Hurricane Sandy is headed for the East Coast, and Wall Street is taking no chances. NASDAQ and the New York Stock Exchange are closed on Monday, as is the CBOE. From DC to NYC, closures have been announced for mass transit, schools and offices. Though we like to put on a tough face around these parts, there's a definite whiff of anxiety in the air. Here's hoping that everyone in the hurricane's path stays safe and dry, enjoying a quiet day indoors while nature rages outside.
