    Indeed they did.  IMHO, the HTML tags give more of a profile than Forbes
    could create.  And judging by the ignorant errors on the part of Forbes,
    I'd almost guess that HFG was chuckling the whole time as they spoonfed a
    hungry reporter.

    An attempt to throw the "FEB" off their trial, perchance, through the
    spread of disinformation?

    Scary?  Hardly.  How many college students rent three room condos?  They
    never mentioned if it was owned by one of them, both renting. or if only
    one HFG member lived there, amongst four other people.  That description
    is as vague as saying that all members of HFG drive late model domestic
    cars.  Gee, *that* narrows it down.  And do they even have condos in NM?
