    Another thought fair & balanced


    Hope you just misread my earlier post or misinterpreted it. Which was

    "However, on your statement about the SEC frowns on mirepresentations, there are real mixed feeling about that. Where were they if they are so good on Enron, WorldCom and Tyco just to name three. You don't really believe that they were all telling the truth in their annual reports and that the SEC was on top of the misrepresentations do you?"

    The point I was trying to make is that I don't think we can take everything in any company's proxy or statements as the absolute truth just because the SEC is supposely policing what companies do. This was in answer to one of Fan's posts that the SEC was policing companies and we could all rest easy.

    I did not compare BBT with any of the above companies in any fashion whatever nor was it my intent.

    Best to you,
