Hey Joe,

I understand that this type of article is designed to sell newspapers. But my idealistic mind tells me that its forums like Motely Fool that have the best chance of going at this type of shoddy journalism and get some decent facts out there into the public domain. Perhaps its a futile attempt, but I had nothing else to do for a couple hours this hot and muggy Saturday....

Seriously, with the internet era, I suspect that there is going to be a hell of alot of new pressure on publications such as Barron's to find the best journalists, do the best research and write the best articles. There are too many other mediums for people to go too to get their information.

In my mind, if I reached one investor that might otherwise made a stupid investment decision based on the Donlan Barron's article and made that person do alittle deeper thinking about what new information they were being provided, then it was worth my time.

Good luck.
