Well I don't know Steve Hilbert, but I wish I did. I would like to know what makes a guy like him tick. He seems to know how to build up companies and he seems to know how to make money. I feel sorry for people losing their jobs , but he created them in the first place and he is creating business', How many detractors have gone out on a limb and tried to make a buck on their own, instead of relying on others to do their thinking. The guy knows money.

<quoted text>Yea, tell that to my wife and hundreds of other employees who lost their jobs and thousands out of their retirement funds when Hilbert ruined Conseco! It was public knowledge that when they paid almost 6 billion for Greentree that it was about three times more than what it was worth! What a bum, I don't know how he can even stay in Indianapolis! What arrogance!

The Haverstick shares are most likely in Tomisue's name anyway - conveniently. Not sure she knows what a share is though.

Now it all makes sense why Hilbert would move operations to the N.W. Side of Indy and get a bunch of incentives. Does Indy taxpayers get their money back???!!!!

That is definitely one way of looking at it. Perhaps without him, the world would grind to a halt.
