People are selling uncertainty.  If the merger goes through, I think we'll do reasonably well, though I haven't got over my anger at the discount selling of ER.  If the merger doesn't go through, we'll be stuck with the same morons who made that deal, and a bunch of shutin gas wells of questionable value.  Do you trust these guys to be wise with the proceeds of sale?  I'll take my chances with Provident management any day.
