I'm impressed with the list and will most assuredly catch some of it.

However, I'm just a bit miffed that they neglected to invite al-d to talk about sardines!

Hang on just a minute......the last speaker is 'Jeff Jinnett, Esq., LeBoeuf, Lamb, Grene & MacRae, LLP'........

Beef, Lamb, Greens and Macaroni..........what's that all about, the dinner menu perhaps??

And who's this 'Bruce Webster, Chair' guy........whatsa matter....he got four legs, a seat, a back and no head........

And I also don't even wanna know why one guys called Arthur Gross......i'll give him the benefit of the doubt and assume its cause he's 144 years old.

I see that Ed Yardeni has rounded up all of the usual suspects. For his sake, I hope that Ed doesn't have to spring for the food. Peter de Jager could alone put a steep dent in his bank account. Of course, with all financial assets becoming worthless in 2000, I guess Ed can afford to splurge.

That menu one was great. As an aside, Jinnett was the guy Goldman Sachs brought in to discuss litigation.
