Panhandle

A real tragedy for Sidney and Nebraska. Cabela family took the company public. Activist investor. Management looking to cash out. Change of control payments. I never understood why Cabela's didn't take over Bass Pro.

Maybe DOJ will block it on antitrust grounds. There should be two competitors in that space.

Added. Some help at link, but you probably knew about Gander Mountain.

Clean Power Plan is terminated with extreme prejudice; billions saved by the American people.

One important thing about government rules like the Clean Power Plan is that they are formal rules. A Trump executive order can't undo it. It will literally take most of Trump's Presidency (assuming he lasts 4 years), to undo it. See the month-old article below for details.

http://www.vox.com/energy-and-environment/2017/2/23/14691438/trump-repeal-clean-power-plan

When federal agencies like the EPA issue new regulations, they are required to go through a formal rulemaking process. First the EPA proposes a rule, laying out detailed legal and technical justifications for its actions. Next, the EPA solicits public comments on its proposal. Then the EPA has to read through all of the substantive comments and either take them into account or explain why it’s ignoring them. Finally, that final rule is subject to judicial review.....

If Pruitt wants to repeal and replace the Clean Power Plan, he’ll have to go through this whole laborious process all over again. The EPA will have to write an entirely new power plant rule, along with a detailed and legally persuasive explanation of why it’s changing its mind. It will have to respond to millions of comments. And environmental groups are certain to challenge any final rule in court.

Extreme prejudice? Is that like strenuously objecting?

Seriously, there's no way you are an actual attorney.

Bennie:

The CPP was not a lawsuit that could be dismissed with prejudice. Reference was to the movie "Apocalypse Now" and it is a euphemism for kill; as in kill the CPP. Not everything in the world revolves around lawyers and lawsuits.

You can't really be from Omaha. Omaha people know the movies of Omaha native Marlon Brando.

And that was a young Martin Sheen in the movie; not Charlie.

Good movie. And Trump loves the smell of napalm in the morning. ISIS is toast.
