(((As of Sunday, 6pm PDT the Nikkei 225 is down almost 6%, which is totally
appropriate given the magnitude and horror of the earthquake/tsunami/
nuclear disaster. US futures are down about 1/2% after starting

the terror is just beginning. Really, only the thought of QE3 and
global monetary looseness are propping things up tonight. This is
so horrible for the people of Japan. Everything is bad right now.)))
