Sure, we're agreed. My point is only that just as a CPA can only work with what they're given, the trustees can only work with what they've inherited. First priority needs to be moving forward, and then as we are able we can try to clean up the past. We just have to do what we can.

So, I think the issue here is that we're over-personalizing things. I think we need to step back. Let's give the trustees a little time to respond, because honestly all we can really add to this is speculation. Unless there is a good reason not to, we really should try to make filings public. That really can be as simple as a scanned PDF on a website or something - there is no need to go crazy with GuideXML making it look pretty (though that doesn't hurt). If there are reasons not to make that public then I'm certainly all ears, although at least the New Mexico annual report form looks to be pretty innocuous. Rich
