two thumbs up...

Damn. From Conrad Black to Ebert, after the critic complained:

I have been disappointed to read your complaints about the former Hollinger International management. I vividly recall your avaricious negotiating techniques through your lawyer, replete with threats to quit, and your generous treatment from David Radler, which yielded you an income of over $500,000 per year from us, plus options worth hundreds of thousands of dollars, and your own Web site at the company's expense.

...

In the light of these facts, and the many kindnesses David Radler and I showered on you, your proletarian posturing on behalf of those threatening to strike the Sun-Times and your base ingratitude are very tiresome.

Sincerely,
Conrad

Conrad Black's my new hero. And I actually like Ebert.

"Base ingratitude"? Scathing...

  • Well done on a nice blog X.A. Botero. I was searching for information on real estate Fort Lauderdale Florida and came across your post two thumbs up... - not quite what I was looking for related to real estate Fort Lauderdale Florida but very interesting all the same!

    Well, it's a new year - in fact it's almost the Chinese New Year. I'm still putting together the latest property portfolios for Hernando County, Florida. This year the budget allows us to purchase a few more nice looking lots on the waterfront - great investment! But we're still juggling the numbers to come up with a sensible forecast - what with the Katrina aftermath and all. Hopefully the coming year will see a bit more stability in the real estate market, particularly here in Florida.

    If you do have a moment, please take a look at my new site: Florida Real Estate .

    Might be an attractive proposition. A happy new year to everyone!
