Subject: Short selling ban S7-26-08

September 19, 2008

Dear SEC:

Your decision to suspend short selling in this manner is truly unbelievable. Your action today proves beyond a doubt that the United States stock market is a rigged casino, and the house (and in this case, your buddies in the banking industry) always wins.

Ultimately, this move will further damage the markets, as investors and traders like myself will refuse to participate in an unabashedly corrupt system. I look forward to joining the class action lawsuits that will no doubt be filed against you.
