(Sigh) It's still a dying business. TC wasn't a college book guy but he was a fast learner and he didn't set out to fire the old timers with the institutional knowledge and hire his buddies. From MLS on it was about the privately held stock value. The family didn't care what happened to the front line associates, they only cared about their $$$.
