If you're going to accuse anyone of trying to "spook" people out of investing in Sirius, it should probably be me.

Hey, I've done my share of spooking too! =) But not in regards to Leon Black. I plead total ignorance on that point--my spooking is limited to the financial statements. Very scary stuff. (OT: I just love those Halloween articles and "scary stocks" that should be avoided. You can often learn a lot by looking at what NOT to invest in.)

I definitely have a negative stance on the stocks of XMSR and SIRI and may have spooked a few people out of it. It's not that I want satellite radio to fail--I think it's a cool concept. But looking at their financial statements, it seems like a pretty good bet. And based on the returns these stocks have provided since I've started haunting this board, I've done a great service for anyone I managed to spook. =)

I am a spook, but not for the reasons accused of in recent posts!
