For the Love of Footnotes!

With everyone's 401k now a 201k, we may want a little more scrutiny of how our investments are being managed.  For over 5 years, Michelle Leder at Footnoted.org has been providing just that in digestible and humorous format.  She digs through the footnotes of the Securities and Exchange Commission filings ferreting out interesting contrasts like Aaron Rents sponsoring race cars but, upon further inspection, the race car drivers are the CEO's 2 sons!  Did you know there's a Chinese Warren Buffet?

She's great reading and her insights provide an excellent counterpoint to data tables and tiny font.

Michelle, glad to do it! I don't know if it would work for you or not as a business model but it would be great to see your point of view integrated into Yahoo Finance too.
