Good reading for those looking to make speculative plays based on a Y2K crash.

They just reported on the Nightly News that Boeing is laying off 40,000 employees, mostly in the US. Add to that the 12-20,000 that will lose their jobs because of the Exxon-Mobil merger. WHEN ARE PEOPLE GOING TO WAKE UP??????

Thanks Ben. I bought some Sept 99 puts today. I thought about taking

money out but decided to do it this way. Maybe I won't be able to get the cash, but I might pay off my mortgage. The amount I invested is

not enough to hurt too much if I loose it all. It has taken me awhile

to decide on this play but I cannot let this chance get away. Please,

don't let my decisions influence anyone else. This is very high risk
