Just briefly, it was a very traumatic experience. They were great, great people. Can you imagine though they had one helicopter and they sent it away? I mean just bad stuff. Amazingly, they didn't make it down there, and that was a terrible thing. And calling their wives, I want to tell you that's not a call you want to make often because they had great relationships, both of them. The third was not married but getting married, going to get married in four or five months, Benanav. He was a great young guy. He was younger than the other two. A great young guy. Anyway, only because he was the only one standing, I put Jack O'Donnell there. He was a third-rate executive. He didn't do a good job. Nobody liked him, and ultimately I got rid of him. Then he wrote a book and he was nasty in the book. It's just unbelievable. But I put him there. I was told it wouldn't be good, people told me. But in all fairness, I had my upper management wiped out. I put him there and he was a third-rate executive. Nobody respected him. They didn't like him. I didn't. By the way, I dealt with him very little, just so you understand. I mean I dealt with him very, very little. I didn't know him well. I could barely tell you what he looked like. But he turned out to be a third-rate executive. He didn't do well. The sad part is I was comparing him against Steve Hyde who was a great executive, like day and night. Like day and night, and so I got rid of him. So he writes a book and he said negative things about me in the book. What am I going to do?
