Glen just a curious question in your neck of the woods. MNTX a company I follow just added a new dealer. Just wonder if you knew anything on the company? I'm assuming they named it after Walter Payton the great running back, or a family member or relative works for the company?

Sold some oil stocks this week on the re-bound. CRZO had a very nice gain in a short time. Still holding leap calls in that stock.
