I'm very disappointed in you Mr. Dover. You're supposed to stare into the abyss. Have it stare back at you and then find a good way to manipulate you. You're not supposed to logic bomb the hell out of the abyss and make trouble for the justification systems of our feudal overlords. This is going on your permanent record.

Ben - Thank for for the hilarious take on the outrageous CRAs and outrageous regulators and congressional snoozers. This flagrant fraud makes me screaming mad; your touches of humor took the edge off the pain.

Thank goodness for Judge Scheindlin refusing to put up with the nonsense spouted by CRAs. I hope the institutional investors recover every penny from these irresponsible CRAs; and I hope state and federal prosecutors are the next to close in on the CRAs.  Now might be a good time for the CRAs to rate the federal and state prisons in which they may end up serving hard time.

Except I'd have gone with "If it can't be fixed, don't break it".
