This really should be on the AOL thread, but two points: MSFT has "backed off" its rumored free ISP offer and T, says the NYTimes, is contemplating spinning off Excite, reducing ATHM to a "dumb pipe" and making AOL its portal, or start page on T cable lines. T denies this but not too convincingly.
That said, I am not as happy with my AOL investment as I was when I bought some at a split adjusted 24 last Nov. (I also bought some around 130) But this stock is like Bill Clinton; it keeps reinventing itself or maybe like nixon, a survivor of crises.
