OK, all sorts of weird stiff going on. The Polar Vortex (didn't I see that in a movie about the end of the world?), Commutapocalypse (apparently the T in Boston doesn't work when it's cold), and then this:
"I am sure that I along with other shareholders in Sirius XM will be interested in a legal challenge to John Malone's company for lowballing Sirius XM's shareholder value," Nader said in a statement.
"Carl Icahn - take notice and interest."
Who said that? Ralph Nader. WTF?! This guy?? The guy who once said,"The liberal intelligentsia has allowed its party to become a captive of corporate interests." I don't know. Maybe he realized that he doesn't have a pension and that his retirement is funded from a 401(k) and he put it all into Sirius stock? I don't know. But, to see Ralph Nader using the language of shareholder value and calling upon Carl Icahn to save him is ... well ... it's ... I don't know what to say. Speechless.
