Two Corporate Lessons:
Lesson Number One:
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.
To be sitting and doing nothing,
you must be sitting very, very high up.
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.

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!
much will we have to pay applied waste management to
clean this one up?
Aicohn, you are getting too bearish. We want
buyer to pay us $35 plus ( a waste company is fine-any
company of means will do). This is an
for a takeover. The buyer can jetison the parts
unwanted and make lots of future $$$$ off the remainder.
