I know I’m the only person who’s choked up about this. What can I say? I’m a historian. As I noted elsewhere, I take the long view of the big picture. And as I noted a few days ago, some of you might actually miss A-B. Anyway ….
Next-day addition to original post: Just realized how callous the above sounds. Obviously I’m not the only person who cares about this. Many people do. Thousands of people. Especially the ones who already have or are about to lose their jobs because of the merger. My apologies.
