now. we are trying to change the mix. we are in a correction now. we are more than 10% down on all three major indices. down 1% on the s&p. during that correction, you change the investor mix to those that are more confident and you get more buyers. so that is kind of what we're in the process of doing but that takes time and there is a lot pain involved and that is what we're going through right now. issues in europe, bad housing data, bad jobs data yesterday with that weekly initial joble claims number and that was terrible. that just conspired to send stocks lower. >> while all of this was going on on wall street yesterday, the senate actually passed the president's financial overhaul bill which is going to regulate not only the big banks but small hometown banks too. what can we expect as consumers out of this? >> well, you get the consumer protection agency soaked with this. how that will look is going to depend on the recollect sail united nations process between the house bill passed in december and this bill passed by the senate. both bill are fairly similar so they'll come up with a
6:26 am
compromise. that is the big thing for us at least initially. consumer protection agent circumstance mortgages, credit cards, we'll get better information and things like that from these banks. i think that is really at least initially for us the big thing. for the banks, they are worried they won't be able to ache make as much money because they have constraints on them. >> thank you. the largest school system in our area is forced to find with as to do more with less. fairfax county schools pass a budget that includes steep cuts and parents will soon find themselves play paying extra from sports to some classes. we'll take a break and come right back. maes r i'suwetgip.tu

6:34 am
to pay $100 per student per sport. some school board members tried unsuccessfully to eliminate the fees. parents argued that it is a hardship they can't afford. >> somewhere along the line, you would have parents that would be more selective on what sports the children would go out for and i think parents would have to make a decision on whether they would want their child to participate in every sport. >> i think it is horrible. i mean there are so many kids that it will take everything out, that they won't be able to play. >> reporter: the school system is waiving the fees for the students who can least afford it. according to the post, students who are eligible for free or reduced price meals will not have to pay. now, there is a silver lining in all of this. the budget situation was much more dire earlier in the year but there was a boost in state aid that allowed them to save some of the programs that had

6:42 am
so basically remeeting donkey and puss in boots and repeating the caches. it seems tired. effect also little bit old. i do want to say this though. donkey played by eddy murphy is easily one of the best voice casting of all time. that is great the have i a problem sometimes with big name stars playing animated characters because i can't separate myself from the animated character and actor playing them. but mike myers does a great job, eddy murphy. i felt like the movie was a little bit tired. i'm kind like between a two and a half and a three. i think it is a very average film. but they are releasing this in shrek 3-d imax. >> i was going to ask this. we talked before about is this flooding of market with 3-d? >> i'm in the a huge fan of need. i think it is taking away from
