    Do you see an orderly transition, or is there panic within Bear?

    There was some; saw a bunch of bankers cleaning out their offices on Sun in case we were locked out on Mon. I won't be there until Friday night again. I'm just so surprised on how fast everything happened; there was no rumor about this going on and all of the sudden, here it is. :/

    Nice; the latest I hear is the Bear shareholders told the JP people "you can stick the $2/share bailout up your ass!" :( (already got told not to work Fri; was supposed to get 2.0x pay)

    Congrats, Sam! That's gotta be a relief.

    Huge, it kinda looks like a big damn fight regarding price on the Morgan buyout. You've got a few large shareholders telling Morgan to get stuffed, but liquidity crises don't die - they just get worse.

    Well I saw a quick blurb in today's paper that JP is encouraging Bear employees to stay, for what it's worth. I guess I'll get a better sense when I'm there tomorrow.

    Well, now it looks like the deal will go to $10 a share. It'll be interesting to see how much of a tirade Morgan shareholders will throw at the sweetened price.
