Wall Street Reopens

NPR's John Ydstie reports on the first day of trading on Wall Street since last Tuesday's attacks on the World Trade Center and the Pentagon. As expected, stock prices closed sharply lower. The Dow Jones Industrial Average lost almost 700 points, or about 7 percent of its value, but some analysts are saying the situation is not as bad as it might seem.
