Just remember a song by Nina Simone, "Sinnerman" from the Thomas Crown Affair soundtrack. She is not the original singer, but I heard it from her first and like her version best.
Sinnerman, where you gonna run to
Sinnerman, where you gonna run to
Where you gonna run to
All on that day

Well I run to the rock
Please hide me I run to the rock
Please hide me I run to the rock
Please hide me lord
All on that day

Well the rock cried out
I can't hide you the rock cried out
I can't hide you the rock cried out
I ain't gonna hide you god
All on that day
Why bother to run?

i've been too busy to keep up with the market lately but i've been peeking at blog.afraidtotrade.com every so often and back when SP500 was around 930 - 950 i sold everything in my 401k. cashed out my wife's a few days ago as well. don't know if we are going down to 500 for the SP500, but at the minimum we are due for a correction that is going to last a few months

depending on who you believe we are about to start the last leg down of this bear or it won't bottom until 2012 or 2014. Back in 2002 the market also rallied nicely after 9/11 and in July 2002 started its last leg down

Good, that will give me plenty of time to increase my income flow from dividends at bargain prices

Robert Prechter had a nice chart on his subscription website last year that showed that in the 1930's stocks bottomed out at double digit dividend yields
