dgmcpa - You're right, it is a good read. In a manner of speaking, I invested in Kinder Morgan before either Kinder or Morgan did. I bought SF Pipeline, part of SF Railroad. After spinoffs, mergers, take overs and/or whatever I ended up with KMP. After looking over the situation I realized that KMI was going to be the even bigger winner. The trouble was Rich and his buddies came to the same conclusion and snatched it away from me (but of course at a lovely profit). Now that they have gone public again I am once more ridding their coattails. Go Rich !
