Dear NY Times News Alert service,
Please do not send me any more alerts about the hourly bipolar swings of the stock market. I do not care anymore. The financial services are a parasite upon our economy. Traders are drama queens who can’t get enough of our attention, and if we keep giving them attention with hourly news alerts on their changing moods, they’ll just want more. Sorry for the tough love, but it’s what’s best for all of us.
