Maybe just a touch off topic but do you really think ESL had any real plans of turning Sears into a long term profitable company?

I'll admit to knowing next to nothing in this situation but you could make a similar observation in any number of different circumstance - just review your proxy statements each year and see the - sometimes - disconnect between performance and pay. One imprinted in my memory was from Big Lots when the CEO was berating the merchandise manager on a call - this was the same CEO who had taken - what - a 30-35m salary the past three years, the one who bot a disaster of a chain in Canada, the one who couldn't see that entire sections of the store needed to be revamped. And 35m for this?
