Exactly. The entire Board of Directors ought to resign and Perez should be terminated. Any golden parachute he has been promised should be revoked. Screw all of them, where is the accountability. And don't say it's the shareholders, because Kodak's stock is next to worthless.

The story of Kodak should be required reading for MBA candidates for generations to come. It's a fantastic example of how to NOT run an organization. George Eastman is rolling in his grave.

Kodak does not have a future because it has NOTHING left to sell. The cash cow is dead and has been consumed. All that is left are the bones and the vultures are fighting over them!

His home (Pittsford) is guarded 24/7 by private security. He should just move out of town. It's over, and he has taken his huge salary long enough. Thanks for completing the devastation. EK headquarters will be low rent condos shortly.

Donations result in honorary doctorates. Pathetic that they were losing money by the truckload, laying off employees -- but donating big bucks to UofR. Go figure.
