    IMO stay away

    I have heard a *RUMOR* from a relatively good
    source that the Staples CEO is ready to call it quits.
    If I'm correct the Staples CEO grew Staples from 1
    store to more than 600.

    I don't believe the feds
    would have any problem with OMX and ODP buying Staples
    and splitting up their stores and other resources
    equally.

    The above is only *rumor* but sounds more logical
    than some buyout scenarios I've heard. I don't know
    how much weight the Staples CEO being ready to quit
    carries with actually
    selling the company to ODP and
    OMX.

    Thank you
