Wow, Jim. The next Shaq? At a PE of 30, with so much potential, I'd say he's a keeper ;) Congrats! Don't know the feeling myself yet.

Re: Mattel, I'll try my darndest to stay a while. Re: reconsidering, I meant to say I've reconsidered on Mattel. On the ROIC situation, still mostly sticking to my guns. A poorly run business with potential is my take.

>>Jimmy Jr. was born on Thursday. Weighed in at 9 pounds, 11 ounces, 21 inches, with a P/E of 30. Mom is doing well. Dad is exhausted. This little guy may be responsible for a few pennies of Mattel and Disney earnings in the future, though so far Proctor & Gamble (Pampers) is the clear winner!<<

Congrats! Would you mind using Huggies once in awhile. Huggies are made with a "Velcro" strip that I believe to be superior to the PG Pampers. I own shares in VELCF. :-)

RE: "Mom is doing well. Dad is exhausted."

Hmmmm. Are you sure Mom's not exhausted too? <g>

Best wishes,


P.S. It's time to start that college account!
