First the NIR debacle...then "accountingirregularities" (which really means someone got caught cookingthe books)...and now top level guys arequitting to avoid spending a lot of quality time withhorny guys named Jimbo and Leroy.SOLUTION: Skipthis quarter's earnings announcement altogether, maybepeople will forget about them and we can fix things bythe time people start asking about the earnings nextquarter!This is a slow death and we haven't seen the worst yetby any stretch. Recently, I read a great quote (Iwas it was mine) which really applies to BSX:IF YOU HAVE TO EAT SHIT, DON'T NIBBLE!Get itall out on the table and take your medicine BSX.
LOL Dude (or Dudette)!!!! How true. Wrote my postprior to reading yours. Great quote. Althoughmaking a comprehensive statement may take a while, to doanything less will be a grave disservice to the company,its shareholders and its stock.More later.
Investors alike have simply confused BOSTON Scientific with BOSTON Market. They'll get it straightened out in a day or so.NNNNNOOOOOTTTTT!!!!!
