Now now, children, let Papi Brrrg Sort this out. Here's how it all works out:

1) Charles Dow co-founded the DJIA on May 26, 1896. There were 12 stocks in the index.

2) 1902 was the year Charles Dow died.

3) Wanting to be as well-respected as Charles Dow, who just died, all of the "full-service" investment houses start saying they've been the best blah, doing florrkle since 1902. Since Charles was the true blah florrkler before his demise.

4) Charles Dow never had a Mouse™.

Adding one and one since 1902.

I like your explaination the best. #3 is the same as Deannda's.

Who has had one of your relatives in her freezer since 1992.
