Does this mean anything?

During the three days of the Republican convention in Tampa, the Dow Jones average dropped 123.96 points. But during the three days of the Democratic convention in Charlotte, it went up 201.16.

No, it doesn’t mean anything.

It’s just odd.

“You could look it up.”

Republican week:
Monday, August 27, the Dow closed at 13124.67
Thursday the 30th it closed at 13000.71

Democratic week:
Monday September 3 was Labor Day; the market was closed.
Tuesday the 4th the Dow began where Friday left off: 13090.84
Thursday the 6th, it closed at 13292.00

The rest, as President Clinton said, is arithmetic.
