Introduced to Tucker by the RepMan himself I found myself talking to him every day, working on a project of his.He was the ultimate professional, and if I may say "a man's man". He will be sorely missed by all he touched.

All those folks that worked for mean Mr Jobs are so angry at him for being an asshole they are returning all their preferred stock and bonuses accumulated over the years. Granted Jobs was not a warm and fuzzy person but he fashioned results that others would give up their first born for. Carol Bartz ruled in the same way as Jobs, unfortunately she did not have the "supreme ruler" genius that goes with it. Perhaps proving bad guys sometimes finish first and last. BTW get your order in for I-Pad 8

I had a problem with DirecTV, was being transferred by customer service to another area to get help. Believe me customer service was pleased to be rid of me. Of course they cut me off and I called back and got a new customer service rep.She asked me what the problem was , she sorted out that problem and saved me some money. Long story short some people in customer service are not very good at what they do and some are.

I am reminded of the earlier, and far superior, Fleetwood Mac fronted by the great Pete Green and the anthem "Oh Well"

Mr Greco is a wise man beyond his years
As my Aussie brethren would say "Stop bloody wingeing Yank !!". You have the gold medal standing for complaining and you should take out citizenship of any other nation in the world and try strolling through US immigration. Even pre-911 my Pan Am flight into JFK (shows some aging I know) I was retained for 7 hours thinking I wish someone would hurry up and invent a laptop so I could show some holiday snaps or play some Indie Rock to my captors. I was once a man without a home on the bridge at Niagara Falls as my Canadian visa had expired and my green card was not active( non of which I was made privy to). I thought I was going to be swapped for a toothless Canadian hockey goon on the bridge.Although I must add that US immigration actually gave my green card back to me.Kudos to them If you want to look at the American complainer please search for the "Waldorf Slad " episode of Fawlty Towers. Just as an aside, what were you doing in Amsterdam? An Ajax soccer game, buying tulips or taking in the Van Gogh museum? Just wondering.HMMMM
Has the big question been asked? Do we have to rename Mickey's dog??
It's obvious that none of you have a copy of the Oxford Canadian Dictionary eh!!

It's a little better than "An Army of One" which maybe is the direction in which we're heading if recruitment continues the way it's going. Unfortunately I believe the audience is small town kids with a limited education so chances are your Junior Acct. Execs are probably not composing a letter of resignation in order to sign up. Or are they?

This merge reminds me of the Steven Wright line "I like to put a humidifier and dehumidifier in the same room and see what happens"
How many people will be watching the next time he pulls his FT-3 out of his bag in a major? Is there such a thing as bad publicity? As a lefty I've always wanted to play like Mickelson and now I do.
