"...IT WILL BE VERY INTERESTING TO SEE...How Alex Mandl and John Malone mesh ... with a divided BofD too.
These are two powerful men and could be an oil/water mix..."

Agreed, I really think that Mr. Malone is quite the character and a savy investor - but it could be a strange little mix between the two of them ... The Berkmans were the ultimate in letting their hired thoroughbreds run the race - they had deep pockets and were hands
off : if you were a CEO, you couldn't have better backing ...

What a deal Mr. Malone got (at the expense of current shareholders) ... I still haven't figured out the status of the "tax free" gains this sale represents to shareholders ... does selling now before the deal closes cause a more significant taxable event than if one waits? Am interested in anyone's take on that subject.
