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

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

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
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
height and build with a flower tattoo on his chest and
shield-and-ribbon tattoo on his right arm.

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
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)...you 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
