    Wow, I am
    amazed. Those shorts have some cojones. I personally
    wouldn't short a $5 stock of a company with completed
    phase III trials and a submitted application to the FDA
    and a corporate partner, especially with an
    apparently passionate shareholder base.

    I'm not fooled, since the
    person who said that was me. It *was* an easy short at
    27. The short interest is and has been dropping,
    though. I was of course wrong about the short interest on
    June 15.
