|Thank you for posting the information about Meehan. He was probably the only connection I had to the New York tragedy, and reading it felt like a punch in the gut. I can only imagine what some of the rest of you are going through.|
I am proud to say that when "everyone" jumped on Meehan, I did not - I defended him. So did MythMan, and I think there were others - maybe you? Meehan had an excellent track record at predicting the market. He wasn't a mindless bullish cheerleader, nor a permabear - he was reliable. Not perfect, but very, very good. He was a very generous, kind, funny presence here on SI. He will be sorely missed.
I will never think of the Kentucky Derby without thinking of him. Bill, tonight I will hoist a mint julep in your honor. Sorry, can't bring myself to make it Budweiser. Those of you who drink Budweiser, please hoist one for Bill. Goodbye and God Bless.
