I read in the Dallas newspaper that you are wanting comments on short selling. I am against short selling. I know you have restricted it, but I think it should stay restricted or be completely eliminated. It is wrong to sell stock that you do not own. This is a process to make money by using other peoples money. That is not right when so many people are negatively affected. Because of the way the market has been going the last year and a half, it sure needs to be controlled. Thank you for listening.
