Her awesome money management skills make British woman Debra Wilson a shoo-in should the job of chairman of the US Federal Reserve become vacant

I am shocked, shocked!

In the Trib today it says that Huron Consulting is restating 3 years of financial statements

The story doesn't mention that this firm was started by a bunch of ex-partners from Arthur Andersen after it folded in 2002 following the Enron bankruptcy.
