Saw that coming. You're right, the NYT = Rush Limbaugh.

That is what I meant. Sorry. But it's probably just baseless suspiciousness on my part.

It is sad. Both parties are jockeying for positions of self interest.

I hope they get something going... mainly because of the fear that has been generated by the dooms-day message that was put out.

I am 100% in favor of oversight and sweeping regulatory changes that would remove CEO and top tier officers' compensation from the boards hands. It should take a shareholder vote on their compensation package. The board can only recommend. The shareholder vote would need allow shareholder to change compensation on a yearly basis.

Unfortunately stock options have led to Officer and Board incentives to take risk to increase share price taking inordinate risk.
