OK, I sent my e-mails. This is the one I sent to the SEC (sorry about the mixed metaphors at the end -- I think they'll get the idea):

Dear Mr. Chairman:

OK, it's time to chime in on this. I am thoroughly appalled by the Bush administration's lack of interest in doing anything about the systematic ripoff of stockholders by unscrupulous CEO's like Bush's buddy, Kenneth Lay, and numerous other CEO's at companies like WorldCom and Global Crossing. Fighting a war in Iraq, which is all Bush seems to want to talk about, will not restore faith in the U.S. stock market.

I ask that you support the appointment, asap, of pension fund director John Biggs, chairman and chief executive of TIAA-CREF, a teachers pension fund that is one of the nation's largest, to head a new independent board to oversee the accounting industry. If the accounting industry doesn't like it, too bad. We're not talking about a fishing party here, we're talking about the credibility of the U.S. stock market. So let's stop back-pedaling and get down to business.

Thank you.
