tyler — The Drudge Report said it all this afternoon with a big red headline that said "It's ugly"
Stocks accelerated their sell off ahead of the close Thursday with all three major averages falling into negative territory for the year as investors were rattled over an intensifying global economic slowdown and ahead of the widely-followed monthly unemployment report.
