What is the cause of this positive disposition by the longs.


Let's put things in perspective.  The aircraft is in the air and the engines have all failed.  There are but two choices:

  1. Parachute out (sell at these currently "generous" prices)
  2. Or go down with the aircraft (insolvency)

You don't need a hopeandaprayer to understand what is transpiring!  Let's put it another way.  0.12$ is better than zero.  If you don't believe me just ask your 5th grade teacher.
