    A thought for this Thanksgiving

    I have been a Mannkind holder since 2008, when I came in to help finish up the facility in Danbury. I have been long on this stock since I heard Al Mann give us his thoughts on Afrezza. Sure, he wants to make money on this product, and he wants his namesake company to prosper, as would any business owner, (or stockholder like myself for that matter). Yet this drug is more than just a profit making opportunity for Mr. Mann. His belief that this drug will drastically improve the lives of diabetics seems to me to be his attempt for a legacy he wants to leave this world, and something for which he wants to be remembered long after he departs it. I, for one, believed him when he spoke about this at the facility's opening ceremony in 2008, and why I have invested in the company at every opportunity. So, this Thanksgiving, I am thankful the America has true believers like Al Mann. And I hope Thanksgiving 2013 sees millions of diabetics thankful they have Afrezza to inhale just before their Thanksgiving meals.

    Cheers everyone and Happy Thanksgiving!
