Bill Mann on WCOM, Tuesday 4/30

Investors need to recognize this: The only thing that has changed at WorldCom right now is that Bernie Ebbers is gone. That is a big thing and, at the same time, it's not. The same anemic board that stood by as WorldCom burned shareholder value by the truckload is still in place. The same executive staff is in place, with the exception of the former king. And Bernie Ebbers doesn't take either the operating problems or the massive debt load with him. In other words, it is still a long, unsure road for WorldCom, but Sidgmore's leadership could be reason to hope.

I did read his column and many more. The paragraph above I took as a warning. Maybe Sidgmore will be able to clean the plate and get more competant people around him. Thanks for your help.
