There was absolutely no cause, other than the fact that the Public Shareholders took Aubry's company away from him.

Founders of iconic companies should be "cut some slack." in my Professional Opinion. Without Aubry's Entrepreneurial risk-taking the company would not even exist. The same is true of Adobe, and Mesa Petroleum without T. Boone Pickens <a graduate of Oklahoma State University -- OSU. Go Cowboys!!! Go Go Go!!!!!
