Rumors, rumors, talk, talk…Greetings from sunny Southern California where I sit overlooking the Pacific Ocean and check my e-mail to find several well-placed sources are reporting that Kent Rathbun has sold Abacus. After I choked on my mocha latte, I picked up my BlackBerry and dialed knower-of-all-things Abacus-y and straight (lobster) shooter, Ms. Donna Tanner. “Whaaaaaat?” she squealed as I asked the question. “No way.” So there you have it.
Update: Big Daddy just called. “I just had a four-hour meeting with my partner and we are very happy,” he said. “This rumor is just false. We are not entertaining it [a sale] at all.”
