Default A good sign from Joe U.?

Well, it's been almost 3 weeks since I posted my offer to Mr. Ueberroth to come to Seattle and straighten out his company, and I still haven't heard from him. I am devastated. I have already spent my expected consulting fee, and Raelynn and I apparently have completely wasted the evening we spent making checkmarks in the Seattle restaurant guide. Of course, there may be a logical reason for his lack of response -- like maybe Seattle doesn't have Internet service yet ....

But seriously, folks -- I note with interest that Mr. U may indeed have brought in someone who actually understands the DQ's business. You may have noticed that AMIE's new board member is Robert Mosier, who was president and COO of DQSC in the early 1980's. He is presently a senior partner in a consulting firm which does a lot of restructuring of firms in financial trouble. He looks like a perfect fit.

My question to all of you -- especially DQSC vets from Mr. Mosier's era -- is "What do you think of this guy?" Did you miss him when he left, or were you happy to see him gone? If he understood the company and its market 25 years ago, his return (even as a mere board member) could be very good news.
