Subject: Reinstate the "Uptick Rule"

To: Mary Schapiro

Subject: Uptick Rul

I beg you to reinstate theUptick Rul. It has been one of the reasons this market is in a tailspin. We now see short sellers taking advantage of the absence of theUptick Rul and driving down stock prices. Please reinstate the "Vptick Rule"

Sincerely: Lou Kridle !Retired person, who has been beaten up with the losses in the market.
