You got your green card, which is actually a heck of a lot more than most of 
the people ended up with that had options.

Many sold???? By the time most of them reached their cliff and could sell, 
the price was down in the toilet at a level that they gained very little. In 
fact, many of the people had options that were under water by the time they 
could sell, and they would still be under water!

Reading about you loosing $500,000 makes me want to get my violin out and 
play a song...you didn't loose anything...you gained a green card, and that's 
more than a lot of people gained from VA...that's something to be thankful 
for in itself.

The $$$s were all irrelevant, IMO, VA was a great place to work and nobody 
should feel they lost anything by being there. History was made there, and 
it's gonna be a long time before someone else steps up to the plate and takes 
that away...Wall Street, the true sport of kings...
