With the retirement of Mr. Canizares the long awaited transformation of Mine Safety into Lambert Safety is nearly complete. With the elevation of Bove and Herring he has now positioned his trusted acolytes into every senior, executive management position. Bigler, Bove and Herring have long followed in his footsteps and Zeitler quickly signed on once it was clear that Lambert was the crown prince and that his personal fortune would be enhanced by joining the cabal of sychophants. Now we have a senior management group think of individuals who have never worked anywhere else and have learned to stay in line. (So well that you never see Lambert's lips move whenever any of them appear to speak.) To Mr. Ryan, I do not believe that your grandfather, father or Messrs. Merrey or Short would recognize the company that now exists. So much hard work, sweat and tears lost.
