    Disagree with comments about Overstock. Have used them for years and they are actually superior to Amazon's customer service, and I have used them for years also and think very highly of Amazon. Overstock is great to deal with and I hope they work out of the financial mess they are in. A real pleasure to deal with. Otherwise, good info, especially on GM.

    You underestimated Cash on the Balance Sheet by seven million and overestimated Accounts Payable by the same seven million, making a fourteen million cash deficit on the minds of would be investors in one fall swoop.

    Are you shorting at FIVE PPS in the "REAL WORLD" this time?

    As you go about snickering, and even laughing at the Goldman and other investment bank lawsuit surrounding manipulation, how many dollars per share based upon 23M shares outstanding do you think they might settle for if they aren't found guilty by a citizen jury?

    What if a trial by jury results in a $10.00 pps amount before treble damages for "willful conduct" or is it misconduct which takes the stock back to where you should have shorted in the "REAL WORLD" again?
