Don't you recognize that it is all as you say, ONLY SHAREHOLDER VALUE counts for any American business, nothing else matters. Not employee morale, not have talented workforce, not having good customers. Saw a rep from AstraZeneca in a medical office today and commented that THANK GOD they no longer use IBM. SHE AGREED. BUT WHAT THE HELL, ONLY SHAREHOLDER VALUE matters and since it is $190, who the hell cares otherwise. GO GINNY, DECIMATE the American ranks and #$%$ off American customers. AstraZeneca, Texas, AmGen, Service Master, Hilton Hotels. All told IBM to take a flying leap off a bridge.
