Thanks for that Chris, and my best wishes to all on the list. When I left there in 2005, it had to be the finest, most talented staff in my career. It's sad to see what LF has done to what Jeff-Pilot gave them.
You really can't lay all the blame on Lincoln.
Just a tiny time after you left, several things happened:
