We're doing things a little differently today.

You may have noticed that the weblog postings have been a little light in the past week. (I hope you still find them useful, though.) That's because I've been working on a major report for The Analyst's Accounting Observer, which is what pays the bills. It's one of those pieces that requires total immersion, or it never gets done. And being as how the report dealt with stock options and restricted stock in the S&P 500, I was anxious to get it done as soon as possible.

So, lately, I have not been able to keep my accounting antenna very high. And my office looks more like a giant rat's nest than usual, filled with stuff that's been put off over the last couple of weeks THAT MUST BE ATTENDED TO NOW. So, I hope to clear it up in the next day or two and get back to a normal level of weblogging. Soon.

Anyway, about the lease restater roll call: just a quick update. Only seven new faces this week: Ace Cash Express, Alberto-Culver, Allied Domecq, Alltel, Bebe Stores, Kelly Services, and Wet Seal. That brings the total up to 268. No complete update today, just the names.

The pace has definitely slowed down. Unless things pick up again, I will be posting the complete roll call only twice a month - at mid-month and at month-end. Let's hope that soon there's no reason to continue posting it at all.
