 Letter from Acting SEC Chief Accountant to Audit + Attest Standards/AICPA
This letter addresses the Commission staff's concerns regarding the March 18, 2003 press release announcing publication of exposure drafts of auditing and attest standards on internal control reporting, and the electronic message that was sent at 11:32 a.m.
As you know, the Sarbanes-Oxley Act grants the Public Company Accounting Oversight Board ("PCAOB") the authority to set auditing standards to be used by registered public accounting firms in the preparation and issuance of audit reports required by that Act or by the rules of the Commission.
I hope this letter clarifies the Commission staff's position regarding the PCAOB's standards-setting authority and the potential impact of the ASB's efforts.

Mail (actually the scanned image of the mail) with handwritten addresses (and machine-printed ones that aren't easily recognized) goes to the Remote Bar Coding System, a highly advanced scanning system with a state of the art neural net processor which is highly effective at correctly reading almost all addresses, no matter how badly written.
Mail is flown, usually as baggage on commercial airlines, to the airport nearest the destination station, then at a nearby processing center the mail is once again read by a Delivery Bar Code System which sorts the items into their local destinations, including grouping them by individual mail carrier.

The power granted to Congress, on the subject of mails, is, both in its terms, and in its nature, additional to, not destructive of, the pre-existing rights of the States, and the natural rights of the people.
The idea, that the business of carrying letters is, in its nature, a unit, or monopoly, is derived from the practice of arbitrary governments, who have either made the business a monopoly in the hands of the government, or granted it as a monopoly to individuals.
If individuals voluntarily send letters enough by the government mail, to pay the expenses of the establishment--well--if not, the establishment must go down, or be sustained like all the other departments of the government, by general taxation-and not by restraints upon competition.

 Ahmadinejad's letter to Americans - CNN.com
In Iraq, about one hundred and fifty thousand American soldiers, separated from their families and loved ones, are operating under the command of the current US administration.
Undoubtedly, the American people are not satisfied with this behavior and they showed their discontent in the recent elections.
But if the approach remains the same, it would not be unexpected that the American people would similarly reject the new electoral winners, although the recent elections, rather than reflecting a victory, in reality point to the failure of the current administration's policies.

The on-line behavior got so nasty that the researchers halted one of the studies; participants in one of the groups became so infuriated with one another that they had to be escorted out of the building.
Where a misspelling in a printed letter leaves many readers concluding that the writer is a slob or a dunce, the same misspelling in an E-mail message hardly makes a difference to the readers.
It is also important to remember the virtues that traditional written communication has to offer: the opportunity to shape a piece of writing into something worth saving and the chance to move a reader by the careful arrangement of words for their cumulative effect.

The women used their bodies to lure and entice while the camera focused in on barely covered crotches and breasts, mostly bare bottoms, and cleavage.
And you see, that's what is so wrong about all these "moral campaigns." First, the so-called leaders of the ADA are most likely heathen bastards whose own moral compasses include doing horrible things to Boy Scouts, or their collies.
Second, every "boycott letter" parroted by the sheep-like minions of the ADA is either from someone who watched the show, and is therefore a hypocrite, or who didn't, and is therefore ignorant of what it is they are protesting!

In 1872 the federal government solidified its hold on mail delivery by passing legislation that granted the Postal Service full monopoly rights over first-class (letters) and third-class (“junk”) mail.
In 1994, for instance, inspectors found 2.3 million pieces of mail in Maryland delayed for nine days and 5.9 million pieces in Chicago delayed for a month.11 Another problem is inefficiency.
