    Kelly, Kelly, Kelly, Kelly

    <no shit, he was unwinding the mess and yet you morons give GA no credit for the game plan KM (whom GA hired for Christ's sake) merely executed. real critical thinking there.> Well gee wiz if it was so easy to execute why didn't Garo handle it himself? Why did he have to go to Wallstreet and hire one of the bright young minds from Merrill. Garo was a very good science man but he clearly was in over his head when it came to the financial side. KM rescued Elan from bankruptcy and now has us a quarter or two away from break even. If Kelly was not brought in we would not be here discussing Elan today.

    • keep drinking the kool-aid.

      "Why did he have to go to Wallstreet and hire one of the bright young minds from Merrill."

      Because he did not have the time nor the inclination to run Elan. His job was TEMPORARY. KM is a common occurance on Wall Street.

      "Garo was a very good science man but he clearly was in over his head when it came to the financial side."

      Gratuitous nonsense, Shane remains as CFO, if GA was "over his head" then the entire organization was also. So the question begs why does the wonderkind keep Shane.

      "KM rescued Elan from bankruptcy..."

      Revisionist history, GA rescued Elan from BK.

      "...and now has us a quarter or two away from break even."

      A few months from Tysabri sales restarting I would hope so.

      "If Kelly was not brought in we would not be here discussing Elan today."

      and yet more self deluding gratuitous nonsense.

      You need to get off the cult of personality band wagon. It's a gross stupidity.
