New “old” stories: whistleblowers and a wild investment scandal

I just added two articles to my “Stories” page:

One is an interview with Daniel Ellsberg (remember the Pentagon Papers?) on the role of whistleblowers today.

The other is an investigation I did in 2002 about a freewheeling investment adviser from the high-tech boom days. His tale was kind of a preamble to today’s financial meltdown. The man in question, Frank J. Garza, Jr., has since been sentenced to 30 months in federal prison and has been ordered to pay $2.8 million in restitution to people he bilked.
