    PS – Jack Morris is a great leader for the CBE.

  5. Very good article, you should send this to the whitehouse.com. It wasn’t the last administration that caused the current dilema, it was the lax rules, regulations, and examples of poor ethics at the highest level. More folks on wall street and banks should get some street level ethics at the local burrito shop and Listen to what is Said! Thanks
