Yep, they bailed out "early" but early, in regarding to the insider trading
rules could REALLY hang them up ! And I did here that almost 2 weeks ago a
judge had frozen their assets. Arthur Anderson fired the lead auditor/scapegoat
today or yesterday (heard it this morning).

And to show you what a bunch of jerks they were, when the stock started the
slide, employees (i.e. the little people) tried to get out but were told that
all of their stock was "frozen" while it was moved into a new plan or something
like that - WHAT NERVE !!!

This will be one for the history books and college business classrooms, etc.

And it is going to really shake-up 401 K's held in company stock and how that
is currently handled !
