Ykoops,

Thank God somebody besides me at the Fool is paying attention to this company. I'm feeling like a resident of the desert island 'Moronville' for investing in this company. Luckily, I've only been watching since January 2004 and didn't invest until early May at around $4.73 a share. I was expecting a major restatement of inventories, accts receivable and possible entire write-off of the Crescent investment. At the price I paid, I thought I would still be (ok) considering a fair statistical margin of safety.

I am exceedingly anxious to see the SEC restated numbers. This doesn't appear to be THAT BAD of a business. All FRM investors, including Mr. Cohen, must be piqued by the management's foul behavior.

If I learn anything more, I'll try to post in on here.

Buffboy
