    Of course he teaches. What kind of leverage do you think he had to get young girls to pose semi-naked in front of him. What some folks won't do for a passing grade.

    Hey, it was a long time ago and math is really hard. I'm not proud of it.

    This folding of the tent didn't happen overnight and in fact slowly rolled out over 10+ years. Decisions (good and bad), diversification (good and bad), sad passing's, too little-too late, complacency and allowing the fox to watch the hen house finally squeezed the life out.

    3.

    I'm guessing that elaboration on that point would fall under the category of "things I had better not" talk about?

    Yes sir.

    Let's just say when my former boss, founder & CEO Bob Errett passed, the transition was the beginning of the end.

    As I said, the demise was a culmination of factors but the transition was the final nail.
