The only thing more entertaining than the train wreck of panic that is CNBC is mixing it in with episodes of the new HBO show The Brink, a very funny comedy about a crisis between the U.S. and Pakistan starring Tim Robbins and Jack Black.
Right now, as funny as The Brink is, CNBC IS giving it a run for comedy supremacy. Watching the two together is enhanced comedy, on an exponential scale.
Annnnnd the CNBC nightmare is finally over. The NYSE is open again. Iâ€™ve never seen so much relief that a market is open in my life.
And after two hours of making the case that there would be a huge volume of shares traded, the CNBC goofs are now in universal agreement about what a good thing it is that the volume is so modest. Whatever happens, itâ€™s good for the market, good for business, and good for America. God bless us one and all.
