Doesn't Price Waterhouse have it's own internal police force or Inspector General or something?? You would think that after Enron killed that other big accounting firm that these people would be more careful. Funny how the relatively small-time greed of a few local partners can wipe out the capital of firms' thousands of partners all over the country. Life's not fair. If it were, they would hang these people from trees and let the crows pick at them, just like in olden days.
just curious... do you happen to remember the moment you learned that Scott's wife used to be a partner at KKD's outside auditing firm? Did you get that bit of a sick feeling in your stomach, kind of alarm thing going off?? Did you ever watch that movie Pinocchio? nice kid but hangs out with a bad element. winds up on this island with his ears and tail growing, some kind of donkey thing. good movie rental. then there's that other one "the Insider" with Russell Crowe. that's a good one too. I mentioned it o you once before. Listen, check out Bethany McLean's photo on Google. She is GREAT looking. If she should call you up, ask her out on a date (like a week in Acapulco, ha ha ). Seriously, put a bottle of Veuve Clicqout in the fridge to chill and invite her over to the pad. Maybe you could watch those two movie rentals together.
Do you realize how many times this happens in corporate America, that people from the auditing firm take a job with a company they're familiar with? It is neither illegal or unethical, and to your knowledge, nothing illegal or unethical has even taken place. All you can hang your hat on is that she used to work for PW (pre-merger), and is now married to Scott. Your point?
If Herb doesn't want to pursue this (and do at least a bit of leg work) why don't we contact the luscious Bethany McLean at Fortune. She's the one that got the Pulitzer for the Enron Story. (not the nitwit donut eating Andy Serwer who wrote the Fortune puff piece).
