Ricoh + Ikon + IBM, hmm. . . .

Anyone else seeing a pattern out there?
I wonder how close their SG&A is to the Wal-Mart standard of 16+%. Do they give dividends? Notice I don't give a hoot about the stock price.

Maybe they will get in touch so I can lay out the steps to reinvent in the textbook industry? I will, of course, charge them whatever the traffic will bear.

Or . . . if anyone wants me to post it here. Comment as anon. Say "more." And I'll do a series of posts describing what I think will work, on this blog, for free!
