Subject: Work for us and uptick rule

February 1, 2009

Dear Mary Schapiro:

Please watch out for us.

We go to work before the market opens and come home after it closes. We send out 401K/other earned money to a place that we can only trust. A place that has all the data, knows the buys and sells before they happen, has relatives and friends and others that can be easily tipped and rewarded. A place over-watched by salaried government people and committees for our protection.

I know you cat remove past sins but letít do it right beginning now. (Iín all for punishing past sins and all those connected to them).

And please reinstate the Uptick Rule and find out who gained by removing it.
