Investors like us care very much, we gained a lot by Hurds move to Oracle, but HP investors and employees lost many, many millions of dollars.
And that is bad for HP investors and employees who have stocks

Right. And Mr. Hurd will have a whole new crop of women to meet out of town.
And his friend, good ole boy Larry Ellison will be there to keep the cops away.
I'm sure she didn't sue because he just complimented her hairdo.
