My wife had a bear that liked to eat out of a birdfeeder on her back deck...bears + birdfeeders = not good. Bears are damn smart critters...if there is an easy food source, they'll utilize it.

I didn't say it was a crash, but it's not merely a correction. It has become a bear market, though...the loss shows it. More problematic is that the majority of that 20% loss has come in the last...
