I don't think the "market value" is even the issue in the Kearns/Lopez deal. Most of the negative comments I've seen are saying that if that *was* the price for middle relief (I'm going to abstain from the use of the word "quality") then we would have just as soon seen Krivsky go after Wickman or Williamson than make the deal he did.
We'll burn that bridge when we get to it.
