Actually, I agree with that statement. There's no excuse for analyst reports that are not fundamentally honest. If a majority of Americans are willing to focus entirely on a war with Iraq and overlook the fact that our stock market lacks credibility and profitability (and I'm not convinced that's true), then Bill Mann is right, we haven't suffered nearly enough to do something about it.

So OK, Bill, if you ever run for office, I'll vote for you, too. Meanwhile, I've earmarked the Web sites for my reps and I will send them a brief note asking them to get serious about accounting accountability. But I'll be frank -- two of them are Republicans who have received large donations from corporations whose only interest is getting lawmakers to do what they want them to do, not what the rest of us want. Of course, I'm not voting for either one of them in November, but I will likely be outnumbered. That's OK, I'll just keep not voting for them until they're GONE or they straighten up. We do have one Democrat who will probably listen.

Thanks for a well-written article. Keep it up -- somebody has to tell the truth about this mess.
