Dear Sir:

Please restore the "uptick" rule and help stop the "madness" There are many hard working American's who invest in the stock market as a source of future retirement income for ourselves and for the education and well-being of our children. Many have lost faith in the US markets and by restoring the "uptick" rule, it is a big step in curbing the voracious appetites of the "vampire short sellers" who have greatly contributed to the recent demise of US equities.

America was, is, and always will be the GREATEST COUNTRY ON EARTH Lets restore some order and dignity to our stock market and our economy.

Thank You.
