Oh, hi, Al. I wanted to discuss the upcoming board meeting with you. I’d like to get your thoughts on putting some new leadership in place. What do you think?... Delighted we’re in agreement. See you at the meeting.
(hangs up; phone rings; answers)
Hi, Ed. Thanks for calling back. I wanted to talk about the board meeting.... It’s about Jerry’s tenure.... May I simply suggest that you consider the possibility?... Trust me, if we get it done, the news will pump the stock and the shorts will flee for their lives.... Yes, I, as well as other members of the board, have someone in mind to replace him. I’ll reveal the candidate when I’m certain he’s right for the job.... See you at the meeting.

Hey, Bill, Curt. Got a moment to talk about our strategy for the meeting?
