Nuthin' but noise in the markets yesterday, fellow reckoner. The Dow fell 20 points; equal to about one-fiftieth of the infamous "fat finger" slip that saw the very same measure plummet 1,000 points inside half an hour a few weeks back. Did the feds ever find someone/thing to point their own fat finger at regarding that harrowing debacle, we wonder? No matter.
