"Fast Fred" Hassan Joins Amgen Board -- My Condolences, To Amgen Shareholders

I have ignored this tidbit of history (for legacy Schering-Plough folks, at least), long enough.

[Sometimes -- I just need to rant. Forgive me for that. I'll try to be. . . restrained, here.]

At the end of last month, Fast Fred Hassan was added to the board of directors of Amgen -- a fine (and storied) biotech company.

This led some in the MSM to speculate that Amgen may be a target -- given Fred's history.

I will make no comment on that score -- or any other.

All I can offer is. . . my condolences -- to the affected shareholders. Onward, now -- to the northlands!
