Please do for ALL public companies what you have recently done to protect Freddy Mac, Fanny Mae and the select seventeen banks. That is - outlaw all naked shorting and settle all trades within T+3 in all US stock markets. Not to do so amounts to outright theft of investors money.

The SEC needs someone at the helm who has a conscience. If I may make a suggestion, former SEC Securities and Exchange Commission investigator Gary Aguirre would be my choice of the man best suited for the job.
