Very good points, Pam.

We all love photography. We all hate the idea Kodak will be dumping
something responsible for building the company. We also would scream if we
were stockholders of a company that did not put profits and dividends first.

I can tell you Kodak has changed. At one time, Kodak would continue to make
film for cameras long departed from the landscape. At one time, Kodak cared
about their customers.
