The bear market has been an oddly mixed blessing for Robert Weiss. In one way, it's been costly and humbling. After retiring at age 41, Weiss lost more than $1 million trading stocks from his home on Long Island and had to find another job. But Weiss hated his old career as a personal-injury lawyer. He loves his new one: suing Wall Street's biggest firms on behalf of aggrieved investors.

NEWTOWN, CONN. - How could this happen? And why? Msgr. Robert Weiss could offer limited comfort to the afflicted citizens of this traumatized New England town in the aftermath of an unimaginable slaughter. "We know there is no answer," Weiss told an overflow crowd Friday evening at a wrenching memorial service at St. Rose of Lima Catholic Church. Earlier, he had spent five hours inside a fire station next to Sandy Hook Elementary School with the mothers, fathers, sisters and brothers of slain children.

I have read the article on Robin Elson, and have a tremendous feeling of rage and anger with regard to her neighbors who were so busy watching her husband brutally attack his family but too cowardly to call the police. Had they done so, this woman may have been spared God knows how much cruelty, to say nothing of what her children have suffered. There is no way on earth a jury could have found her guilty, if there is any justice left.
