    I don't know about this venture, and how it will turn out in the future, I hope Missouri Meerschaum doesn't sell.

    Phil just told me 2 months ago how well business was doing, and they recently bought up Old Dominion to keep up with their supply shock as well. I think it would be a horrible choice to sell the company as whoever bought it would likely end up ruining the whole thing. If not immediately, within 10-20 years, they'd ruin it. That's exactly what venture capitalists do, they buy up companies, gut with a quickness whatever isn't profitable and then run the company into the ground for about 5-10 years to pump money out to investors and then close it all down.

    This news is frankly disgusting.
