A day's worth of some excellent storm coverage by CNN was all but shredded during the Piers Morgan show Monday night when meteorologist Chad Myers reported that the New York Stock Exchange was under three feet of water and the hip-shooting host ran wild with the report that turned out to be false. What a shame for all those CNN correspondents in places like Rehoboth Beach, Ocean City and Asbury Park who spent the day and night standing in cold ocean water and rain doing such a fine job of reporting the story.

MUCH AS IT has for more than 200 years, the New York Stock Exchange opens this morning for trading. But these days, a new era also opens for the Big Board -- one demanding not only new leadership but a new governance structure. The NYSE has long been the blue-chip brand among America's and the world's stock markets, the last eight years under the very public leadership of its now fallen chairman, Richard A. Grasso. Last week, on the two-year anniversary of his finest hour -- when the Big Board reopened just four trading days after the 9/11 attacks on its very doorstep -- Mr. Grasso resigned.

Richard Grasso Resigns. The New York Stock Exchange fashions itself as the global symbol of capitalism. But now, the controversy over Richard Grasso and the ousted chairman's pay package has the storied institution itself under fire. The board pushed Grasso out yesterday less than a month after the disclosure of his $140 million pay package - but only after pressure continued to mount. Tuesday, managers of the nation's three largest pension funds, including California's Public Employees Retirement System, joined the chorus demanding that Grasso step down.

WASHINGTON - The Securities and Exchange Commission will approve rules requiring companies that trade on U.S. stock markets to get shareholder approval for stock-compensation plans, people familiar with the proposal said yesterday. The requirements will be included in listing standards that the SEC plans to approve Monday for companies that trade on the New York Stock Exchange, the Nasdaq stock market and other U.S. exchanges, the sources said. The new rules would let shareholders reject option packages and other stock compensation awarded to executives by company boards.

THE ANTIDOTE for what ails America's stock markets is earnings - that is, actual profits and honest corporate reporting on those profits. Sooner or later, America's fundamentally strong economy will deliver sufficient earnings to reignite Wall Street, but that won't wash if trust in those numbers' accuracy remains shaken. This week, Congress and President Bush are set to attack the corporate abuses that have thoroughly undermined investors' confidence. Mr. Bush's speech today on Wall Street could be a watershed for his presidency, his party and the economy, one in which he has the opportunity to transcend the GOP's 20-year deregulation drive and his own history of questionable stock deals.

In this "new economy" era, exemplified by computers, globalization and precision, the cornerstone of the U. S. financial system -- the stock market -- still relies on an inexact measurement system dating to the Spanish conquistadors. They used the system known as fractions. Professional investors don't much mind having stock prices quoted in eighths and sixteenths of a dollar, viewing fractions as a kind of secret knowledge that separates the in-the-trenches traders from the investing masses.
