KO spin out.

How about spinning out a portion of KO in exchange for our shares? Maybe something along the lines of South American operations. Get the Brazilians in on the deal to manage it. Tax free consolidated earnings and better management.

Re: Boeing 757 Sheds Panel in Flight

I've lost several panels in my career. Do you want to fly a plane that is designed to fly with a panel missing or one that isn't? They are held on by fasteners that can fail. They aren't "structural." Being made out of lightweight aluminum, [more]

Re: OT missing 777
