Dow Dips Below 7,000. It is Now 1997

You can start unpacking your old Junior Vasquez Madonna remixes, everybody: The Dow Jones Industrial Average is trading at 6,836 right now, which it last did in 1997. The drop follows a bad day of trading in Europe and Asia as well as news that AIG and Citigroup are bleeding cash faster than the cast of Scream 2. [NYT]
