Iâ€™ve been watching CNBC for about 45 minutes now, trying to get more information on the NYSE shutdown, and Iâ€™m convinced that for every minute I watch, Iâ€™m taking a month of brain function off the end of my life. And that goes triple when the most annoying man in television, Jim Cramer, starts yapping. I hope you appreciate this sacrifice on my part.
Bottom line: there is a desperate and palpable need to express over and over again that everything is fine. They really have no clue, but by God, theyâ€™re going to keep talking, even thought they have nothing to say. And it will all be fine, weâ€™re sure. Repeat endlessly until the market restarts, which after 76 minutes it still hasnâ€™t. The endless loop of happy - and desperate - talk therefore goes on.
