Don't get me wrong, I don't want to see MLPs going private, but the market is indeed throwing the baby out with the bath water on many of them.....the one thing that is working in favor of the unitholders is that capital is very tight making an LBO difficult. Your comment about self serving is true for some, but not all MLP managers. Many of the MLPs have long track records of rewarding unitholders with steady distributions for years. I think it is unfair to blame management teams for the global crisis. Virtually everything is down at least 20% to 50% over the past 18 months.
