I hear what you are saying. Sometimes you have to take your lumps when businesses go pear shaped, (is that a British term? er means tits up. Oops there's another one, anyway you get the gist).

I accept the losses I have, I'll move on.

It does sadden me that of all companies, Williams would wipe out so many people, little guys. Given the way they project themselves I am surprised. I figured they would throw 5% the shareholders way, I do think, given all the lawsuits and bad publicity flying around, it might have been smarter to do that.

I agree with you that Williams Communications has a great future, if they get out of this.

It is Friday night here, I have enough cash left to drown a few sorrows and move on.
