According to a front-page article in (today's?) Investor's Business
Daily, Barnes and Noble withdrew their offer to buy Ingram on
1999-06-02, under FTC pressure. My interpretation: amazon.com won't
die this year, and my local booksellers will still be able to compete
with B&N, at least as well as they ever have.

According to my medieval text in the seventh century a finalizer raised a
dead object named Gorth who infected every computer in Cappidocia ending
Roman rule in the region.  -- Charles Fiterman on gclist@iecc.com
