what is "polyster"? No company is immunce to the corporate corruption as seen by the market prices lately. I never compared Ed to anyone... early_nguyen Oh yea??? "Polyester" Ed has been so adamant about SBC's financial reporting that it makes me wonder if he, too will be the next Joe Nacchio or Bernie Ebbers.... early_nguyen http://messages.yahoo.com/bbs?action=m&board=7083873&tid=sbc&mid=54160&sid=70838 73
"You say SBC's accounting has zero flaws? Two weeks ago many at Xerox said the same thing and on Friday last week, there were those who swore by Merck's accounting practices, too. " early_nguyen
What the hell does this have to do with the price of tea in China? (or is it Vietnam?) Well I guess using this arguement you can say, "Can Early pick up chicks in a bar? Two weeks ago guys at bars picked up chicks. There were those who swore by their pickup lines, too!"
Give us a break! If you compare Ed to corrupt CEO's you need to compare every CEO in this country and draw a correlation with corruption.You must be selling every stock you own because you can't trust anyone...right?? Big Ed has seen this company through huge increases, economy downturns, mergers, 9-11 and other companies scandals. His mgmt team is rock solid and SBC's accounting has zero flaws.SBC, BLS and VZ will be the only telecom's left and you'll still be looking for some weak negative statement. You need to come up with a new angle to bash this company because your present approach is like a 1st grader analyzing the worlds economic direction.
If you want to talk about first graders, read your post. How can someone be so naive? I never compared Ed to anyone - those of you who continue to rationalize about this company need to remember that just 90 days ago, Bernie Ebbers was heralded as one solid manager. Who's to say that the roof won't come crumbling down on SBC? You say SBC's accounting has zero flaws? Two weeks ago many at Xerox said the same thing and on Friday last week, there were those who swore by Merck's accounting practices, too. Get out of the vacuum and smell the roses.
