Thanks For The Reminder Of Pru Bache's Greed

It has been nine years since we partook of a Prudential-Bache Securities Inc. public seminar "to learn more about various safe income investments...." We have since learned the hard way, along with thousands of others.

Thanks for reviewing Kurt Eichenwald's Serpent on the Rock in "How greed poisoned Pru-Bache" (Books, Aug. 14). Too bad CEO George L. Ball and James J. Darr, who headed the firm's limited-partnership department, can't be required to buy copies of the book for every single library in the country.
