At the exact same moment that CP officially rid itself of its most aggravating problem, Lisa Raitt, it lost one of its most capable and valuable board members, Linda Morgan, to cancer.
Rest in Peace Ms. Morgan.
While Obama was currying favor with his clueless minions blocking Keystone, real people with real priorities in the real world went on with life in the real world:
"Volkswagen's US sales go up in October, despite diesel emissions scandal"
Screw CSX and the horse it rode in on.
These #$%$ deserve the weasels they overpay to keep them from making ay money.
If you were one percent as rich as Ackman, let alone as smart, I might listen.
But you're just a poor, jealous idiot.
So I don't.
Wow...Melvin Steinberg (whoever that is) just figured out what everyone else realized for the last 18 months.
Wow. Please Keep us posted.
You were offered the opportunity to be wealthy. And part of a great, more meaningful enterprise.
And your deceitful weasel executive management screwed you over. And billed you for that screwing like the hooers they are.
And to this day, you defend the weasels.
If you believe someone named Melvin Steinberg is roght 95% of the time, I guess that's a lock.
Who are you, let alone who is Melvin Steinberg?!
You predicated your "fact" on a presumption regarding an irrelevant third party.
Actual facts are unconditional.
And you're a BSing idiot.
After seeing that CP did not go hostile on CSX...and saying repeatedly that its saw no point in ever doing so...the executives at NSC seem like they're open and willing to hear CP s full pitch on the idea. Which is positive for everyone. And a helluva lot more constructive and less self-serving than what CSX did to preserve their own pathetic little jobs at any price.
It might not go for any number of reasons. And maybe some shmuck at NS already poisoned the well with this media leak. But there's still a chance.
And it would be nice to think that something as basic as simplifying the spider web of freight railways by a little bit wold be something that the greatest economic power on Earth could manage to pull off. You know...with China going ahead with creating the next economy out of thin air while we sit around eating cheeseburgers.
And screw Obama. That empty suit might have been a fatal error.
BTW, does no one find it a little odd that the retail pharmacy industry, in a country with the ominous demographics of the U.S., can be consolidated down to a virtual duopoly in Walgreens an CVS without so much as a peep from anyone....but the idea of merging just of two of the seven railroad monuments to the cowboy-and-mail era is too mindblowing to even conceive. In the 21st century.
Here's what'll be interesting: seeing if super-sized ships are even used in the next decade,.
