B.D., you are starting to remind me of the character
Groucho Marx (Z"L") played in the classic comedy
"Horse Feathers" (1932), wherein he performs the song
"Whatever it is, I'm against it."

I'll leave it to more inquiring minds to discern the
parallels between the Lego saga and Leica. In brief,
though, both originally European family-based
companies pioneered a type of entirely non-essential
plaything around the Depression era, and both have
since lost their exclusivity to more aggressive
competition coming from elsewhere. The corporate
ramifications are also strikingly similar.
