Mark Haines, 1946 - 2011, RIP

Mark Haines, anchor of CNBC's Squawk Box in the mornings just died.  They were really eulogizing him maybe a bit much, but he was one of the guys I respected there (Rick Santelli is the guy I liked the best, you know, the guy whose RANT practically started the Tea Party).

For years now (over 10), my preference has been to wake up at 9:30 AM (ET) to catch the opening of the stock market.  Haines was the guy on at that time.  And I liked his style.

I especially liked his coverage on September 11, 2001.  I had just turned on the TV, right before 9:30, and then learned about the attacks on the Towers.

RIP, Mark Haines.  You are in an even better place than CNBC now.
