Good morning. Thank you for that lovely introduction, David [Ruder]. I noticed that David's name tag says Professor. But, to me, he will always be the Chairman I was fortunate enough to work with.
Thank you, Joe, for that lovely introduction, and I want to thank you and Ann for inviting me to join you today. It's really an honor to be here.
Good Morning. This is an open meeting of the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission on April 8, 2009.
Today, we are considering a recommendation from the Division of Trading and Markets that the Commission issue a release proposing several alternative rules concerning short selling.
Thank you. And, thank you to Diana (Henriques) for that very kind introduction.
It's an honor to be here with you today because in so many ways we share the same goal. We all strive to achieve an "informed citizenry."

Thank you, Chairman Schapiro.
Few, if any, issues confronting the Securities and Exchange Commission in recent months have received as much attention as short selling. Retail investors, institutional investors, issuers, industry experts, broker-dealers, exchanges, academics, pundits, lawmakers, and others have all weighed in — which brings us to today.

Good morning and welcome to your Master Class on Corporate Governance. Thank you, David, for your overly kind introduction.
Thank you for that kind introduction, Linda [Thomsen]. It is great to be with you today and to see so many familiar faces.
I have been back at the Commission for less than two weeks, after a nearly 15-year hiatus. I am extremely proud to return to the agency that I know is so important to investors and our economy.
