LFMN at $4. I can't believe
what a POS [piece-of-sh-t] that thing is. Shame on me/us for giving
them any benefit of the doubt.

I don't want to be
a whore for f-king mgmt. If 2-2 means that we are putting half of Merrill
retail into this stock because they are out accumulating it then I don't
think that's the right thing to do. We are losing people and money and
I don't like it. John and Mary Smith are losing their retirement because
we don't want Todd to be mad at us
the whole idea that we are
independent from banking is a big lie

The first bullet is pretty
bullish, no? The tone of the bullets doesn't quite jibe with the cautionary
tone on the call.
I don't mean to be a pain
on this one, but this stock is a powder keg, given how aggressive we
were on it earlier this year and given the "bad smell" comments
that so many institutions are bringing up. If you really think it's
going to 30, or you have any real concerns about vodafone, etc, I want
to at least get them clearly in writing. In any case, maybe don't make
the first bullet "reiterate Buy" unless you think it's going
straight up from here. You don't have to make writing conform to rating-I'd
rather it be the other way around.

I bet Comcast is the C doing a deal with you know who - it's Comcast
or Cox and I bet the former.
