I thought the stock price part of the message worth the read.

Misleading (vs. number of shares), but OK.

OK. Talking the talk, walking the walk, and keeping presence of mind 
can't but be a good thing.

Funny. The first time.

Guess I just hit a saturation point with the useless drivel cluttering 
up the eye space. It's been a bit much lately in the list. Don't / 
didn't mean to pick on any one person. Sorry John.

There's MS bashing (complaining), and discussion or news, then there's 
beating a dead horse. Then there's comments on the technique used in 
beating the dead horse. Then there's oops, missed a spot.

And it's not like MS doesn't deserve disparagement, repeatedly 
self-inflicted.

Personally, I'd like to just shoot the horse and be done with it all. 
Get it out of our worldview.

I'll go take a Tums now.
