That's what Puppy and her "let's sue IBM" gang doesn't understand. The easiest way for IBM to resolve the pension/medical issues would be to simply discontinue them. Since she is no longer an IBMer, she doesn't care if IBM simply discontinues the pension plan (except for the current vested employees for their current vested amounts) and the medical plan. Current IBM employees happen to care and we wish that she'd go away and spend time minding her own business. She most certainly DOES NOT represent me or my opinion.
