	Why not do something like:

STATUS=`wget -T 120 --save-header http://www.MYSITE.com/ -0 -2>
/dev/null | grep "^HTTP/1.1 200 OK"`

	If STATUS is "" it failed otherwise it passes. Buy using the
	grep you reduce running the extra pipe and it is clearer to
	understand by someone else as to what you are looking for.
