Some sort of meeting/press conference

Recommended Posts

Just barely caught something on the news about GM having something like this in Wilmington today. Anyone else here this/know details? I kept watching but they didn't return to the story, and I was just waking up at the time. :blink:

maybe if we listen close enough well hear buickman heckling the board.

Nah - I was thinking more along the lines of the buckles being clamped and fastened on his straight jacket.

Hmm, odd that it would be in Wilmington. I guess that's what threw me.

Most major US corporations are incorporated in Delaware, including General Motors- it is why corporate litigations take place in Delaware, i.e, the Disney court battle last year. Plus there is a history between GM and duPont ( founded and based in De.)

Drove by the Hotel duPont this morning- tv crews and protesters were lining up near the entrance. Didn't see Bob, Ricky or Bm though :)

I'm aware of the Delaware monopoly on corporations, it just struck me as odd that the meeting physically take place there. Is it a legal requirement?

Thanks for the post.

No requirement. They used to have the meetings around the country, but have had in DE for a good while now. Ford had their meeting here ( Hotel duPont) a few weeks ago.

As for a monopoly(?)- no monoply, just great tax rates!

I should have put "monopoly" in quotes in my reply. 8)
