To Whom It May Concern:

The NASD's request for accelerated approval of Rule Filing SR-NASD-2003-158 is not only not acceptable to me; it is offensive. That the proposed Code of Arbitration Procedure contains some troublesome language for investors is all the more reason that this Code should not be rushed through the system without public comment. If the SEC grants accelerated approval, the investing public will have cause to accelerate their thinking that the fox is watching the henhouse.

Please note my objection.
