Anyone want to comment on the following quote from page 45 of the 1998 Annual Report (Section 20. Restricted Stock)

On February 1, 1999, the Company awarded 810,000 restricted shares of common stock to several of its key employees.

WOW!!! I mean, 98 was such an AWESOME year, why not give away $4.3M for the incredible job done over the past year! WHAT IS WRONG WITH THIS???

Maybe I'm just reading this wrong... maybe some key employees were pulled aside and told, "Here ya go fellas! Have these worthless shares of stock at $5.30 per share, and make something out of them!"

Maybe that would have worked if they'd have canned all the FRICKEN turkeys that got them into this mess, and given the stock to the new recruits!

Comments, flames, anything???
(even Z thrashing is fine!)
