Stock Market Update: Friday August 21, 2009

Today's stock market update is brought to you by the lazy doofus who spends too much time sending time wasting emails instead of actually working. The only interesting thing happening on Wall Street today is that they held their first ever, official casual day, sponsored by The Gap. That's right, for the first time ever, New York Stock Exchange traders got to wear jeans to work! And I know you're all asking, "Why can't we do that around here?" And of course the answer is, "Whaddya mean? Every Friday is jeans day in our region - it's just something we don't tell our boss!" (Now that I've outed all of you, let me just mention that you can thank me later . . .)

And because I have actual work I should probably get done, I took the easy way out today. Here are some great headlines from the interwebs . . .
