Subject: Short Selling

February 20, 2009

Dear SEC-

I could not find the right person to contact, so please pass this along. The SEC must re-institute the uptick rule immediately. I am an individual investor and these short selling market manipulations are causing material harm. With a stroke of the pen the SEC can help make honest investors re-enter the market and restore confidence.

Thank you,

George Griswold
