Mary Schapiro, why are you saying we'll likely have a circuit breaker versus a plus-tick in a recent BusinessWeek article?

Did you, god forbid, misspeak? Were mistakes made?

Is this your autocratic, preordained decision?

Is this comment-taking period a cheap publicity stunt?

Please explain comments made in BusinessWeek recently:

When, oh when, will the SEC do the right thing?

Or will congress thrust it upon you as they unceremoniously strip your agency of its powers and facade?
