    I am convinced that there is a group of folks who
    have been unhappy about the merger and they have been
    working to undermine this stock ever since. The comments

    analysts and we should be calling the shots, whine, whine.
    We're not going to leave the sandbox without throwing

    and scare everyone by saying that we don't trust
    management. We can play into a predictable market downturn
    and fear of rising interest rates. Funny how the

    PZN's management. There are a lot of politicians who
