    Senior Management

    Now that "oldwillie" has made peace with his buddy, we can get to the business of saving "flatrock" 20k. The building of a new plant in Nebraska likely makes as much sense as that testament to bureacracy they built in Franklin Lakes. It is all about Senior Management arrogance. They don't ever pay the price. The shareholders pay by having this no growth dog stuck at the same price it was 4 years ago.

    Ask Kozy about the plant...he has been with BD forever. He will give you classic political "spin". Ask Cohen about no growth...you will get talk of futures...no execution. It took the new "bean counter" CEO a year to get his former boss off the Board. You know - the guy who has delivered nothing.

    Senior Management at BD will continue to punish the many good people who want to do it well. It is just that - Management - not Leadership. And they keep a Board who protects them. Can anyone honestly challenge that.

    Hey "flatrock" - $32 is no bargain. Better go elsewhere.
