    • Cuban criminal escapes from private prison

      HOUSTON (AP) - The search
      continued Monday for a Cuban national
      and convicted
      criminal who escaped from a north Houston detention


      Joaquin Aguila Echenique, 42,
      overpowered a guard and bolted out the
      front door of the
      Immigration and Naturalization Service Houston
      Center on Saturday evening. The facility is run by
      Corporation of America.

      Echenique, a
      convicted rapist and burglar, had served his time in
      Texas prison system and was awaiting deportation.
      However, he was
      being held indefinitely by INS because
      the United States cannot deport
      immigrants to
      Cuba, with which it has no diplomatic relations.

      Witnesses said Echenique jumped into a white van
      that appeared to be
      waiting for him. INS
      spokeswoman Luisa Aquino described him as being
      of medium
      height and build with a flower tattoo on his chest and
      shield-and-ribbon tattoo on his right arm.

      Nashville-based CCA declined to comment on the
      escape .

    • Ah, r7; as a recent poster on the thread, it's
      not surprising that you would miss the relevance the
      General's Stanley Kubrick post. These threads are whatever
      the posters make them. Many threads are inane,if not
      insane. This is a continuation of the CCA thread, which
      for the most part functioned as well as or better
      than any thread I've ever seen in terms of providing
      useful information and discussion regarding a particular
      company (pro and con, from a wide variety of

      What is relevant about the General's post
      is that he made it. He's contributed a lot of what
      you would even consider relevant, and set the tone
      for the discussion early last year. Whenever he
      posts, whatever he posts, it's nice to know he's out
      there watching.

      As for you, r7, you are just as
      welcome. But when you do post "relevant" information,
      please make it accurate or give some basis for its
      credibility. Many of us are still waiting for some
      documentation of how you know what Treasury is going to do with
      PZN (in the meantime, disbelief comes easily).

      • If you had checked on the new dividend increase.
        Even the whinners here have been hush on the new rate
        increase as the whole plan is coming together.

        stock in the last few days is beginning to respond to
        the new rate(you back buying again?). It's starting
        to look as if under $20 will be a distant
        memory(sorry whinners) barring a real market crack(or bubble
        burst? sorry). But of course the math is just plain
        simple(and has been all along) don't grow the dividend
        15-20% and expect the stock to stand still.

        kills me is most likely most of these whinners probably
        are sitting on some mutual fund that's loaded with 5%
        growers with P/E's of 50 (Coke-Cola). ""But it's not
        stock it's a mutual fund"".

        NIce to have you

    • THAT'S WHY the title of the posting was prefaced
      with << (OT) >>, a message board courtesy
      which, to the informed lurker, means "Off Topic" and
      thereby alerts a lurker to the fact that the subject
      matter contained therein has no relevance to the
      thread's subject stock and, if they choose to, they can
      pass it by.

      HOWEVER, should even a casual
      lurker, possessing a modicum of perceptiveness, have read
      #498, they might have surmised from its content that it
      in some way related to its poster's screen name, a
      poster who had been a frequent contributor to the
      pre-merger CCA thread almost from its inception and who
      continues to try to make factually relevant, sometimes
      amazing, sometimes amusing contributions to the PZN

      It is also quite possible that that same casual
      lurker, having read posting #518, could surmise that the
      numeral in its poster's screen name might in some way
      relate to said poster's Intelligence Quotient.

      • First of all I DID NOT post 518. But it is VERY
        MUCH relevant to this thread. Because these continued
        escapes from your beloved PZN are only gonna make pzn's
        legal troubles worse. Lets face it if Pzn can't keep
        inmates under control they have no business in the
        As for intelligence quotient i really take
        issue with that being as how u don't know me. You may
        not like my posts but i have not attacted your
        intelligence. I have been investing since 1986 and i know what
        i'm doing.
