    Much love for LSO and Epicurean Dealmaker. Seriously, I wish I could send that guy a gift or a puppy or something.

    Thanks for the suggestions, all, they're going on my iGoogle page.
    A few more I forgot:
    The Accounting Onion, Tom Selling
    Accounting, Fair Value
    Accounting professor's blog about IFRS/GAAP and accounting/FV/FMV issues.

    The 10-Q Detective, David Phillips
    Accounting, Filings, Research
    Former research analyst points out interesting things from company filings. Unfortunately he's been getting a little political lately (I have other blogs for that) but he still finds some interesting stuff and his style has informed who I look for details in 10-Qs and Ks.

    Footnoted, Michelle Leder
    Filings, Research
    Like 10-Q detective pulls interesting stuff from company filings, with a big emphasis on compensation info. Now owned by Morningstar.

    There have been many great comebacks throughout history. Jesus was dead but then came back as an all-powerful God-Zombie.
