any bets on how wide this spread is going to be over the upcoming weeks prior to the vote?

I think we've surpassed 3% today.  It's the only thing keeping me from selling Orko to buy FR - I suppose if the deal doesn't go thru, FR gets its 15% back, while Orko would probably fall back to a buck. Maybe I should do it now for that reason alone. D@nnnit!

this is the #$%#$%$ turnout for what should have been a celebratory week. 

and really, we couldn't find someone willing to pay cash? Now we're anchored to the company, which is anchored to silver, with demons smashing the price with reckless abandon.  a rising tide floats all boats, but anchors always sink.
