Welcome to the May 13, 2007 edition of Corporate Vigilance.

Holger Jacks presents Minnesota AG Swanson Takes on the "Big Boys" posted at Buying and Selling Your Life Insurance, saying, "This articles discusses the current suit of the state of Minnesota vs. Allianz and American Equity Life."
Leon Gettler presents Going greener with Apple's options (APPL) posted at Sox First, saying, "Apple has announced it's boosting its green credentials by reducing or eliminating the use of toxic materials in its products in the next few years and increasing its recycling of computers and iPods. You have to be wonder whether it's coincidental. You can't really separate that from what's going on with Apple's options scandal."
Jack Yoest presents Exxon and Global Warming and Capitalism (XOM) posted at Reasoned Audacity, saying, ""Exxon, the sign of the double cross," quipped one leftist wag. The oil energy giant is often maligned by anarchists, non-capitalists and environmentalists. No matter what a Fortune 500 does, it will be maligned by socialists.
And now the tree-spikers/tree huggers are even madder. Or are celebrating. It is sometimes hard to tell the difference.
1) Exxon recently stopped its discretionary funding of a left-leaning think-tank. And,
2) Acknowledged that the temperature has risen."
Tracy Coenen presents Overstock.com CEO Patrick Byrne and the subpoena problem (OSTK) posted at FRAUDfiles.
