I don't see any announcement of the promotion of Kenneth to EVP other than his face just appeared on the Tellabs Officers web page. Fire the workers and promote the management and they are wondering why they cannot win the race. Could this be the farewell present from Birck ?
You sound like a pretty disgruntled employee ( who is living off this host);
as an older outside investor I hope you are in the minority group of parasites.
Did you look in the mirror and review yourself instead of management.
