    Big Boys Give Green Light to Shorts.

    Shorting is good. This is a free society, not an Orwellian nightmare, unless you're a conspiracy loon.

    However, yes, naked short selling is not right. I't out and out cheating. Legitimate shorting keeps the market on an even keel, otherwise all you'd have is pump and dump schemes up the wazoo. Except they would be pump, pump and pump some more, then dump on the suckers.
