If your phone don't ring... it's them.
With the wolves getting rather restless and the vultures circling impatiently above, The PNB Audit Committee had a meeting. It wasn't their first regarding the present situation, nor would it be their last.
Ask anyone who was a part of Tuesday's telephone circle jerk to tell you what the result was and you will probably get a blank stare. As the amendments piled up on such simple decisions as determining an agenda, the clock—which has not been on the side of Pacifica lately—ticked ominously. This was not the usual factional war—although there was some of that below the surface—but rather a case of the blind leading the blind, memories failing, and utter frustration. Should the auditor be invited to the net meeting? Some thought not, because the bill has not been paid and such visits can run into the thousands. Others felt that the auditor's presence would not make any sense, because the Committee has nothing to lay on the table. Still others realized that nothing makes sense anymore, if it ever did.
The following excerpt will give you a good idea of how farcical all this has become, and if you for some very odd reason feel up to it, I have also include the entire stream, which comes in two parts and almost takes up as many hours.
