A recent rumor prompted me to call Alex Amor at CEI.  While I didn't
believe the rumor itself, per se, it was more detailed than most and
allowed me to put certain questions directly to him and have them
answered.  The rumor revolved around a completed C= UK buyout, and gave
information about pending creditor meetings and the like.  The buyout
itself proved to be false, as I suspected.

However, as I talked to him, the liquidators called him.  We hung up,
but I called him again the next day.  His voice mail message told me that
he would be traveling that day and the next (Thursday and Friday),
which puzzled me since he hadn't mentioned any trips.  I thought perhaps
his departure had to do with the rumor I handed him.

Finally, Tuesday, I got a hold of him again.  He had returned and was
leaving again the next day for New York.  I prodded around to find out
why he had left, and when I asked him, "Was it something drastic?" he
said, "Yes, something drastic has happened, but I can't go into detail."
He was about to start a meeting with his bankers to, as he put it, "talk
about what it is we need to do."  End of conversation, he said he would
get back to me when he was back in his office.

Hmmmm.

[As an aside: I recently reported on Usenet that Amor would be gone until
December 12th.  There was a miscommunication and I apologize.]
