Publisher's Note
With misbehaving politicians, banking woes and Ponzi schemes dominating the news these days, it can be downright depressing if you think about it too hard.  Let’s look on the positive side, starting with your accounting practice.  We have a Your Firm’s News section of the site that exists for you.  Many firms send us their press releases on staff additions, partners joining boards, and the like.  That’s terrific.  However, in light of the gloominess in the general media, let’s turn it up a notch!  Get with the partners and marketing people in your firm or at your company and have them pepper AccountingWEB with positive news.  E-mail press releases and news.
