#3 millions of dollars in the Globe's unfunded pension obligations

This should be fully funded out of the sale price. Take the money and put it under the mattress if necessary, but, cut this unfunded obligation bulls***.

Personally, living in Globe land, I'm laughing my ass off. 8^)

#4 are they required to be pre-pink-slipped under the WARN act? Will they all be 29 hrs/week part-timers to avoid Obamacare?

#10 The Taylor family looks like a bunch of financial geniuses. Sell asset for $1.1 billion, buy it back for $100 mil, put a couple hundred mill into the company, sell for $ 1.1 bill.

Rinse lather repeat.
