Is Soros going to call in our loans ?

I am very concerned we are about to get cremated, sliced and diced and sold off as donor parts. I have my resume out, but no takers. With this negative balance sheet stuff happening, its hard not to wonder what's next.

WFT is going on with our stock price!

What's YOUR Last Straw?

Fun poll. If you've left or your looking, what pushed you over the edge? What policy, benefit cut, event, person, anything? Not the worst thing but the thing that made you decide you had enough? Or if you would quit 'csept for golden handcuffs?

Is this an option?
