As a frustrated long time stockholder of TEN, I
am curious as to the references to the remodeling
being done (or already done) to the Monroe building in
Michigan. With everything else going on within the company,

assume Tom Evans and Jack Thompson have their reasons.
The scotch and his refusal to kiss Snell's butt
is what began the demise of FTG. FTG is the farthest

Nevertheless, the very top mgmt at a little ol' company
cranking out $50B in yellow iron think FTG is "the goods."
These guys in Peoria aren't dummies.
Yes, FTG would be stronger than the Italian

TA is in deep trouble w/GP and are in danger of
losing the account. Bob Mckenna has commented he is
amazed that someone could drive a company to ruin in
just 18 months.

More food to support your thoughts. GP stock
really soaring since the 9/15 board meeting. Many GP

Mogul and GP do a "joint thing"
Then GP bundles the
entire brown group as a spin off company.

You know what would have been an interesting battle
FTG vs the short and insecure

have a choice).
FTG spit nails and took no sh__

and Frank would have ground him to rubble.
could use a guy like FTG right now.
