THE FINAL WORD -
It seems that the Dow Jones Industrial Index hit 16.000 on my 60th birthday! I remember a Broadway musical back in the late 1960s titled HOW NOW DOW JONES whose story line was about the announcement that the Dow Jones hit 1000.
It starred Tony (then billed as Anthony) Roberts, Marilyn Mason, and Brenda Vacaro, who, if I remember correctly, spent the entire show wearing nothing but a towel. The one semi-hit song from the show instructs, "Will everyone here kindly step to the rear and let a winner lead the way."
