    I just read this today and does anyone know what type of stock options scandal they are mentioning?

    Wow, I hand't heard anything about this. I have always liked Barnes & Noble, but I know some people can't stand them. Sure, I would go to a quaint, family-owned bookstore if there was one available in my region, but there isn't.

    Barnes and Noble is just like any other large company, the proponents of little family run businesses don't like them because they tend to drive down prices and run the small guys out of town. IE Wal Mart.

    I don't know if you can compare just about any other business to Wal-Mart. Have you seen the documentary "The High Cost of Low Prices?" Scary stuff.
