Re: [sct-user] Horizon to Horizon
- Hi John
I was being a little tongue in cheek (tic). I'm well aware of the new
products, and wouldn't mind a MAD MAX Mount or the 16" RCX400. But then
again I have to share with you that I am very concerned about Meade's
finances and the sudden departure of their CEO, and his staying on as a
Board member. I realize that Mr. Murdock may well be liked and held in
high regard, but still I am convinced after pouring through the SEC
filings and the two sides airing their dirty laundry - that Mr. Murdock
nice guy that he is, left under a cloud. I still hold hope that Meade
will weather the storm and the stock experienced a slight bump today.
I'm watching to see who comes in from the outside to lead their ship, it
won't be from inside as it was before. Management is tainted and the
investors don't want more of the same.
Marketing group probably is not a fun place to be working right now.
There must be extreme pressure from inside to put Meade best foot
forward. Misleading hype and rhetoric in magazines won't cut it with
those that know. But you know how those marketing types are they all
have qualifiers, like we were comparing to a Dob or something equally
