All this talk about stock made me think about the RP companies from the
point of view of an investor and not as a customer or user. (Kinda like
being a Chiefs fan watching the Superbowl - not as much enthusiasm.) I
checked out the stocks from several of the sites present from Yahoo. When
you got charts, P/E, market cap and the like to look at, the view is much
more sobering - almost sterile.

On the other hand, as a long term investor you could look at the situation
as an industry-wide sale! But, the question is, which one is the best
choice from an investing standpoint rather than a customer/user
standpoint?? Hey, this is good - anyone willing to guess at the values
six or twelve months from now? Hey, for some of the prices, investing
would almost be as expensive (or profitable?) an all-night $1/ante poker
