You make a good point.. I was kind of taking the caller's position just as a devil's advocate. I do agree with the rest of the crowd that there's probably less than a 10% chance that the caller was really an "insider" and is probably just blowing hot air..
Hopefully Homer can get back on track.
Thank you Walt and Bob for going for it in 2012 AND 2013!
