Hey Rodg..

I was reading the paper this morning, which just happens to carry the Motley Fool newspaper column..

the column this morning provides snippets of TMF's recent interview with former SEC Chairman, Arthur Levitt.. there were, obviously, more than a couple of interesting things, but this particular bite, I thought, was especially pertinent to what you're trying to do with Apple:

"It is well and fine to talk about the wrongdoers at WorldCom and at Enron and at all the gatekeepers, every one of them: the boards, the lawyers, the accountants, the standards setting agencies, the regulators. All of them were asleep at the switch. But the real issue where were the investors? Why didn't they ask questions about a company they couldn't possibly understand? The have to pay out a portion of the blame, as well."

Thanks for asking the questions, Rodg.

We'll soon find out whether or not we'll be allowed to ask questions... which, in turn, will provide more insight into the answer to Levitt's question.
