Thank you, John,
    You have told us something that needs to be told over and over not only
about the Standard Oil situation but about many others as well. I have
lurked listening to this discussion and often wondered what would happen if
Bill Gates moved his headquarters and his jobs out of the US and into anyone
of a number of countries where he would be welcomed with open arms.
    I have often reflected also on what it is in the soul of a collectivist
that so so hates the very guts of a capable individual. I have no answer but
I agree that we should not too gleefully point out the foibles of the
collectivist mind or make too fun of them regardless of how much they deserve
it; it just "ain't" sporting.
