3. As to beaten out of us...
Until a champion investigator has enough power to turn the investigation into a prosecution, there is little more that can be done than documentation.

The phrase making hay is indeed apropos here. A hayfield is sown and the first year generally looks awful infested with vetch and other weeds. The second year (generally after the second cut)the grass crop has usually taken over the field and can be cut again and again for years producing fine hay.

Substitute S&L for alfalfa, or BCCI for clover...

Usually there is some crisis that ruins a field, or it's a rotation so some other crop is planted that a new field is set up.

Same MO indeed. A crisis spoils one field by perhaps getting to close to an actual elite and it is plowed under with operations shifting to another field that has been prepared.

Until we have a prosecutor with leverage, even if some one were to publish the collected notes of Jack Anderson I doubt that the ubiquitous John Q. Public will pay any heed.

Thanks for your persistence, Mark.
