    RE: UMPQ Stock buyback.

    Gracias, my friend.

    Only as a matter of discussion, if you look at any Oregon bank equity Buy-back since January 2007, my numbers tell me that no shareholder has benefited through appreciation of his shares, at least so far.

    I suggest that $.070 cents directly into my pocket is more beneficial to me as a shareholder than a dollar Buy-back, the value of which will never likely contribute to market price appreciation.

    I know you will not be persuaded but, just for fun, if you don't mind, tell me how it's better for me to perhaps, maybe, someday, to have my cake (preferably German Choclate, that will eventually be taxable) rather than a small slice right now.
