When someone of the debit and credit arts is functioning in its natural habitat (e.g. a cubicle farm), instincts are acute. Within these walls, all it takes is one glance at a schedule of figures and even the youngest accountants can spot something amiss.

Austin Lee said James Lally claimed connections to horse racing, NASCAR and then baseball, all in one short conversation. His NASCAR connection is supposedly to a metro Atlanta resident and former NASCAR driver Andy Lally. Lally insists there's no relation, Thomas said.
