Actually, I'd say she's singing with real gusto. Sure, the company may
get the stockholders to go for some brilliant 'turn around' plan, which
may keep the respirator plugged in for another quarter. But the bottom
line would appear to be that either someone buys the company, or the
doors close in the near future.

But remember, folks, if you are a film Leica user, the only thing that
changes for decades to come is that the price of used equipment will -
probably temporarily - increase in value. There will still be 10s of
thousands of lenses, bodies, and accessories out there, and for most of
our life-times, there will be repair people as well. All that will
disappear is perhaps the most inept corporate management in recent
history. ;-)
