odd mail

Saving log - $4 tip box
Spending log - $1.50 coffee + $22 groceries & lunch

Peaches were at .99/lb at the downtown supermarket, so I picked up some along with a plate of california rolls for $3.79. Nice to see 2004 prices for a change.

My mail contained a notice for a class action lawsuit for Coke shareholders of record between 1999 and 2000. During that time, KO dropped from $80/share to $30-$40 and so far hasn't recovered completely from it. Plantiffs are suing that KO misled the company finances, etc. I'll have to research this a bit more - the possibilities are to take it, ignore it, or file for exclusion. This was about the time that DH gave me a share and started me off of DRiPing. I had one share and was working on a bit of another at the time. I'd be shocked if I get a check for more than single digits.

    Opt out of the class action and SUE THEM!!! Isn't that the American way? How dare they, an evil company (as if there are any other type) lose value in their stock!!!

    It must be a conspiracy!!! Bush and Cheney must be involved some how. I think I heard something about Haliburton switching to Pepsi and illegally shutting Coke out of Iraq. Maybe this is the illegal war I keep hearing about.

    I could always sue my grocery store for the food that I bought which loses value ... because darn it, I didn't know about E coli and fungus and what not rotting the stuff from within. That was a hidden surprise too.

    Its why one reads the company materials and reads about the company in the headquarter's local papers, and understands risk: what comes up can come down. Now whether KO knowingly drove the business in the ground??? Who knows.
