    Does anything sound a bit odd about this to anyone else?  Would someone remind me what ”industry inovations” were again?

    Here we go again.  Another positive spin on the life and times of a person who has gotten wealthy off of other people’s pain.  Unbelievable that yet another good thing came to him when the rest of us who have had any dealings with him are suffering.  Got to hand it to him, though.  He must have one heck of a PR person helping with this one.
