Please do everything in your power to stop naked short selling. Allowing this to continue is eroding the proud mission that the SEC has presented for the protection of the small investor like me. If the naked short selling is allowed to persist I believe the scrutiny of the US Congress will be unleashed against the SEC with any end result further eroding the investing public's confidence in the US financial system. Our country needs heroes and now is the time for the SEC to be one.

Thank you
