Response to Enrique (Reply #42)

44. Enrique, because they got it right once with Mittsy doesn't mean this article is terribly fair or

complete. FWIW, they avoided plenty went it came to Mittsy--one had to go to the Boston Globe to get much of what they declined to cover.

This is a hit-n-run dig at Gore. It's all about HIS finances, and it's not like he's the only owner over at CURRENT. In fact, he owned what, twenty percent of the franchise? Not a word about his partners--why not dig into their portfolios? How much will Hyatt take home? Feinstein's husband?

Even the title of the hit piece is All About Al. It's like "How dare he make a smart business deal." It's no secret that CURRENT has been on the block for awhile. Why not take the best offer with cash to back it?

And who knows what he'll do with his profits--perhaps invest in another iteration of Harvest Energy?

I don't see anything terribly "ironic" about bringing oil money back to the US in the form of deep profit on a sale--hell, they do that shit all the time. We're still the largest consumers of the crap, after all-what else should be done with their cash? Encourage these oil-producing nations to invest in.... China?

Curious. The tone of the piece is confrontational--I noticed this. I don't think I am the only one.
