Randoms: Full Disclosure

A little perspective amidst the ticks of the tape.

Full Disclosure

Today is a profoundly sad day in Minyanville as we received word that one of our own---one of our family--suffered a tragic accident.  We are, above all else--above the acumen, humor, humanity, education, insight or foresight--a community. When one of our own hurts, we all hurt.  When one of our own is in need, we are there to help shoulder the load. 

Out of respect for the family, I cannot communicate details and will ask Minyans not to inquire further on this matter. I will share more when I'm able and do my best to focus on the task at hand, heavy heart and bloodshot eyes notwithstanding. I will ask for your understanding, patience and empathy, as our greatest loss today has nothing to do with a P&L..
I wrote my morning column last night and there are nuggets of wisdom nestled within. I'll do my best to share insights throughout the session but my head and heart are elsewhere. As we pride ourselves on honesty, trust and respect, I felt it important to communicate the situation as a context for my content, or lack thereof as the case may be.
Thank you, Minyans, and good luck today.

Try as I may, the flavor of my prose is stark, absent and void as the shock and sadness of this sudden situation permeates. I've been on the horn making travel arrangements, so please excuse the brevity of my post. I've got one eye on the tape as this is what we do, but it's being done with new found -- and unfortunately familiar -- perspective. Some quick vibes:
