The board has their own interest (three will become boardmembers of AT&T )and so have their own interest which is different from shareholders who can vote no on the merger and sell thier shares on the public market if they don't want to be AT&T shareholders. Bam! Thank you, mame, and goodbye!!

Interesting take, but look at the logic you used to get here.

If you would excuse me here. I too am a BellSouth Shareholder and thinking of selling while the selling is good.

You seem to believe that Bell South shareholders are getting the short-end of the stick. If that is the case, I will certainly hold on and become part of AT&T as they IMO were fairly valued and if BellSouth was a bargain, tehy are now undervalued and I think size will be important going forward. so...Why do you believe this? Serious question there as I am trying to decide.

Now if AT&T is overpaying, then BellsSouth's directors are acting in the shareholders best interest, so I assume you believe that is not happening.

If the deal is a push, then you may feel that small size is wasier to manuever and manueverability is important, I do not feel that the combined SBC & Bell South will be too unwieldy.

SO just curious about what your thoughts are here, thanks.
