How to Be a Bad, Bad Little Accounting Blogger
For the record, Caleb, my paranoid fantasies do NOT involve any level of government whatsoever since, well, you know, the Fed isn't actually a government agency.

That being said, it was only a matter of time before an accountant/blogger actually turned out to be criminal*.
