    He’s very good in every way.

    And clearly not aligned with the elite, which is a great thing.

    But he is long winded and repetitive. Wish he would provide smaller bites or an overview, or recap.

    Just my sound bite trained brain expressing pain.

    I read Bill Black because I read this small circle of blogs, but I get “Honest Accounting Fatigue”. This is analogous to Fed fatigue or stimulus fatigue. It does not really matter what makes sense, all that matters is how the world works. Try watching Wall Street today and the diologue has not change one bit. The only thing that has changed is that Martin Sheen is in rehab again and Michael Douglas is lucky to still have an esophogus. Cooking the books is alive and well and sanctioned.
