Sad lives 

Today’s Wall Street Journal has a funny/sad story (subscription only) about how people’s lives have been affected by the market slump. In some relationships, there is a new “six-word battle cry: ‘I told you we should sell!'”

There’s the story of Sheldon Cohn in Michigan: “Mr. Cohn keeps his sanity by focusing on things he can control. His two young sons battle every night about who gets to put toothpaste on his toothbrush first. ‘Our net worth is down 50%, and I can’t do anything about that,’ he says. ‘So I just focus on the toothpaste.'”
