It’s about a great program offered by the American Accounting Association (AAA) for people interested in becoming Professionally Qualified (PQ) to teach accounting at the college level; and it’s about some recent commentary, like that of Senate Banking Chair Christopher Dodd at a March 4 hearing, reported by Tami Luhby of CNN.com here, questioning whether some parties were “asleep at the switch” (ZZZ) during the recent credit crisis.
