    i completely agree with the overall sentiment of this article--the revolving door between the financial services industry and the SEC should close and true independence should prevail. That's almost a laughable concept given the history, but it really is possible--look at the strict independence that has been imposed between public companies and their auditors, starting with prohibitions on cross hiring. Regarding Dodd Frank, I hope the regulations on the financial services industry make more sense than the regulations from DF on public companies. So many of the latter, such as the Conflict Minerals disclosure rules and the executive clawback requirements either have nothing to do with investor protection or are difficult to impossible to reduce to practical regulation. Once again, Congress's clumsy efforts to address real corruption in the financial services industry end up dumping more disclosure requirements on public companies that really benefit no one. Very few people read 40 page proxy statements for a run of the mill annual meeting, which is where we are today thanks to excessive disclosure requirements.
