To the point....I will not bemoan the facts and fate of corporate direction and decision...it is out of my realm...it is not my place to tell one how to run ones business and how to answer to ones investors...

it seems according to the posts that "all is not forthright"

once again the loyal customer is getting some smoke...

Ron, I also readily admit that I speak very selfishly, for me, the "color processes" I as an amature photographer and "artist" work with, and am learning to work with, are not confined to nor dependent upon the use of color film...I would miss it, but it would not be catastrophic in the least...I would be busily back at work with my alternatives bright and early the next morn...

I choose not to align my hopes with a company whose policy statements and direction do not compliment my own expectations...this is not a value judgement at all....each must choose their own dedication and direction.

The times they are a changing...IMNSHO that is usually a good thing...new directions, and opportunites, solutions and unexpected pleasures!
