    Insider trading should is illegal for you and me and now it is supposed to be for congressmen/women. To me the excuse that financial advisers executed the trade for me does not hold. Using that logic I should be able to use the excuse a broker executed the order for me.

    I wonder how well congressmen/women will abide by theStock Act. Yes, I am suspicious and cynical about the ethics of all politicians regardless of their party.

    One of the very few times I don't disagree with you :)
