Trail Mix: What Do Dracula And Wall Street Have In Common?

OK, there's the obvious answer: They both want to suck us all dry.

But then there's not-so obvious answer. They both suffer from Seasonal Affective Disorder. If Dracula would get out in the sunlight every now and then, maybe he'd be less prone to biting people in the neck.

And given that Wall Street has a history of tanking big-time in October, then maybe it's because of the shorter daylight hours. Investors are all on edge. They need more sunlight.

So perhaps the cure for the economy is simply to put up a giant sunlamp.
