Skewz me?? What in the....???  Options are supposed to provide a financial incentive to create success in a reasonable time frame. This is a blatant slap in the face to shareholders who have suffered through the nosedive this company has taken. If I'm on the board approving options 5 years out, it better be for 2 bucks a share. This grant to Merrifield shows the company doesn't have much faith that they're going anywhere in the next several years.
