      Two Corporate Lessons:
      Lesson Number One:

      A
      crow was sitting on a tree, doing nothing all day. A
      small rabbit saw the crow, and asked him, "Can I also
      sit like you and do nothing all day long?" The crow
      answered: "Sure, why not." So, the rabbit sat on the ground
      below the crow, and rested. All of a sudden, a fox
      appeared, jumped on the rabbit and ate it.

      Moral of
      the story:

      To be sitting and doing nothing,
      you must be sitting very, very high up.

      Lesson
      Number Two:

      A turkey was chatting with a bull. I
      would love to be able to get to the top of that tree,"
      sighed the turkey, "but I haven't got the energy."


      "Well, why don't you nibble on some of my droppings?"
      replied the bull. "They're packed with nutrients."


      The turkey pecked at a lump of dung and found that it
      actually gave him enough strength to reach the first
      branch of the tree. The next day, after eating some more
      dung, he reached the second branch. Finally after a
      fortnight, there he was proudly perched at the top of the
      tree. Soon he was promptly spotted by a farmer, who
      shot the turkey out of the tree.

      Moral of the
      story:
      there.

    • Saul Steinberg is busy running his own company, REL, into the ground.

    • Where is Carl Ican, T Boone Pickens,
      Stienberg.............we need 'em----Book value is $17 per share--and banks should be selling for 2X book--------So what's the story.........

    • Those being laidoff get a severence package and
      are being cut when unemployment is at a 30yr low. No
      doubt they will find a job. Most will find better jobs.
      Feel sorry for the employees that are sticking it out
      at ONE. The stock seems to have no bottom. When will
      someone buy it up?

    • Didn't anyone ever tell you that this a message
      board, not a CHAT Room. I'm trying to read the messages
      posted today and every other one is from you. Go take a
      nap and let some other people who know what they're
      talking about post. You don't have anything useful to
      contribute.....

    • Didn't Vitale Retire a few months ago. Next Idea?

    • My patience has been stretched to its limit...
      What was cheap at 30 has become cheaper at 26... Every
      day it's down, even when every other bank is up.
      What's wrong here ? Stupid question, I know!

      How
      much will we have to pay applied waste management to
      clean this one up?

    • This is the opportunity of lifetime. This is not a short term stock its going to grow into huge equity for those who can be patient!

    • Aicohn, you are getting too bearish. We want
      a
      buyer to pay us $35 plus ( a waste company is fine-any
      company of means will do). This is an
      opportune time
      for a takeover. The buyer can jetison the parts
      unwanted and make lots of future $$$$ off the remainder.

    • This ONE is on the way up. Last change to steal this stock from the dopes that are selling.
