How noble of Jim Heins to advise the economic situation will not prevent his company, the criminally convicted Purdue Pharma from having a "brunch" for their employees. The families of the victims of the criminally convicted Purdue Pharma would love to have a "brunch" with their loved ones. Unfortunately, they can't. I'm looking forward to 2009 and further justice for these victims.

Ms. Skolek, please accept the condolences of the Stamford community regarding the death of your daughter. If it is of any comfort to you, Purdue Pharma lost a sizeable deposit on a Christmas party that they were planning when the restaurant closed and the owner skipped. Justice no but hopefully some sort of comfort to you and your family. Justice will prevail eventually, perhaps not on this earth!

Thank you "Gordon". I am convinced there will be justice and yes more "not on this earth." This company is responsible for a modern day Holocaust in the way they marketed OxyContin which has ruined scores of lives. I will continue to be the voice for those victims in exposing Purdue Pharma for further criminal marketing of OxyContin. Happy Holidays!

Let's hope she'll be able to watch those wheels of justice just grind away...
