Listen to this 'Talk of the Nation' topic

October is usually a bad month for Wall Street... So why is November so skittish all of a sudden? In the course of four days, the Dow dropped more than 600 points. And these stories are getting a little old: sub-prime mortgages, lousy retail numbers, a tanking housing market. Top it off with high gas prices and the pending holidays and nobody's quite sure what to expect. This time of year, a lot of us have money on our minds, so we've called our friends at the Motley Fool. We'll have to put a hold on Neal's fantasy portfolio, until next time, but let us know what questions you have about the markets, investing trends, and what's hot or not on Wall Street.

Although lost baggage is a serious subject, I encourage people to CHECK their bags . It has changed my traveling experience - far more easygoing.
