Wow, you get around! I just replied to your post over on Yahoo!
Anyway, on calling direct, I learned a long time ago talking direct is a doggone waste of time. Unless they'll allow a tape recorder, I don't want to hear anything they won't say or comment on publically. Heck, they have an IR dept, if they have something worthy to say, I'm sure the press will listen. Release it!!!
Frankly, all of these turkeys just love having someone call and spread their smoke and mirror pipe dreams without formal confirmation on these threads. No thanks...
