C'mon SEC... You guys are a day late and a few SIRI shares short. Let me tell you about the Howard media frenzy. He has been churning his stated options and threats publically for months before he ever committed to SIRI. Now, if you know anything about Stern, the self-dubbed, "King of All Media" then you would know two things: That he is obviously challenging himself by taking SIRI and sat radio into the mainstream. He worked the whole censorship thing and the FCC evil for his benefit. Secondly, The King of All Media was not going to DC with XMSR. He was in DC prior to NYC. NYC is the media capital of the globe. DC threw Howard out when he made a crank call to Air Florida for a one way ticket to the Potomac River. NYC welcomes the self made media guy no matter how tasteless they are in public. So.... The King was going to SIRI IMO all the time. The run-up was the fact that people inside the journalistic circles knew he was talking to "sat radio." The King held his court in check and let it metriculate at his wish. SIRI investors made some money by reading the papers. Let us hope...

OFX (who is long on XMSR and is a sub, holds nothing in SIRI, yet)
