    trouble in paradise

    I welcome the converted. There is no "NEW" B-D.
    That was all hype. I know most of the folks soon to be
    cut...many were hired to GROW the business, only to be
    stopped by B-D's ultra conservative, no risk approach to
    business at every turn. That approach works OK if your a
    bank, but not a growth stock want-to-be. What B-D's
    management (no joke intended by the word) doesn't understand
    is that taking a risk is acceptable. As James Coburn
    once said "the next best thing to playin' and winnin'
    is playin' and losin' ". Forget 40, forget 30, hello
    20. I wish I wasn't so against shorting stocks.
