this can't be the best place to park $17,500.00 in this market

One doesn't really "park" money in a short. You GET money when you short a stock! If you're 100% invested in stocks (long), you can still short a stock without incurring any margin debt. Consequently, I see shorts as "free money"--as long as they go in your direction.

That said, if I were to short a company, I'd probably pick something other than SIRI as well. With the launch and all, I'd be very worried being short.

But it's not my money, so I don't really care. =)
