boring market sleeping bears awake angry

Answer: Probably sleeping, if you are on the continental USA. Greece is a slow moving train wreck, but at some point it  has to come to an end, just don't know when and how. And if there is one thing I learned in the Marines,don't wake sleeping bears. I know this might be obvious, but it is so easy to sell fear, just ask Glenn Beck. It is also so easy to sell hope, just ask marketers of 2008. But I should really know this having spent a tour of duty in advertising many years ago. Why do you think I wrote an article about Tim Tebow and Bernanke..? Nobody cares about Bernanke, but Tebow that's a whole another story. (Yes, I  am a Broncos fan, but at the same time, let's give the 24 year old kid a break.  I mean really he doesn't hurt anybody and he is not an egotistical thug. Kim Kardashian on the other hand was making sex tapes at 24 and for some reason the media still pays attention to her?)
