THANKS, ED! I've been biting my lip now for a day or so as this thread
plays out - you said it better than I could have, or anyone else has!
I've had an excellent experience with TRF to date. I, too, hope they're
around for a good while. But the fact is, it is a privately held
company, and we can only hope that C. Runyan, too, hopes they're around
for a good while! If he does, then the prudent business decisions will
be his to make.
