Tonight’s appearance will be Kudlow & Company, and I am scheduled to be on from 5:00 to 5:30 pm, plus or minus a few minutes. Also appearing: My old pal Noah Blackstein, John Rutledge, and Charlie Gasparino.
I have to emphasize again:
That said, I will attempt to be humble given the debacle of today’s markets . . .

About that sweater . . .
As soon as the Dow crossed negative 150, I just knew I was going to get the call from Kudlow’s producers. I made a half-hearted attempt to beg off, but it went nowhere. They needed someone who had made a bear call, and my new office is at 46th & Park Avenue, 3 blocks from the remote studio at 49th and Madison.
I always wear a suit and tie to appearances — I even keep a backup outfit in the office — suit, shirt, tie, shoes, the full monty. But since I just moved into the new digs just 2 weeks, ago, I haven’t brought in the emergency regalia yet. Hence, the casual Friday, unshaven, buy-side sweater.
At least I wasn’t in jeans!
