Good morning Schnapps. As our friend MLB had been saying for a long time now, it really doesn't matter what we lowly shareholders think or say. The fix is in & that is what has concerned me when I read the glowing accolades for PE. Let's be realistic, he does what he is told to by the TIGS. To say that he has any interest other than his own survival, in helping smaller investoirs, who lets face it have paid for his lifestyle all these years, is to only fool yourself. Buyout or takeover, it doesn't matter, as long as we get paid out at a decent price, which I see as $10 or mire. Keep the faith & have a great weekend. By the way Arlekino, that was a very good post.   rdgeo
