It’s hard to get me to laugh until my sides hurt and tears are rolling down my cheeks, but damned if the Federal Trade Commission didn’t achieve just that.

The company I work for has been the target of a hostile takeover attempt, which has had us in a state of unrest for several months now.

Why it took so long is a mystery to me, since I read the ruling on our hostile suitor’s last acquisition, and those conditions no longer apply, but that’s a separate rant.

Wanting to see the good news in the original language, I pulled up the FTC document on line, reading this and that about restraint of trade and market share. Yes, good, fine, someone’s used good sense, thank G-d, and here’s the ruling: the FTC is blocking the acquisition.
