    He claimed he was short oil when it was at $100 (on the way up) and then said he was long when it was at $140.
    Both times he tried to talk his book and justify his positions.
    Now all he talks about is wind and the Pickens plan. He's lost it.

    At even 40% of his net worth to start 08, the guy is 100x richer than all of the posters in this thread combined.

    What I've learned is that most of the best traders, take their lumps at times. But with that said, if he hangs on to a few million, he's still going to be fine.

    He just may not be able to single handedly finance the Okie State athletic department:D
