Oh man does that suck. They're good people so I hate to hear about Larry's illness. Will keep in him our thoughts and prayers for sure.

My prayers go out for him and his family, too. I'm a major AKA fan if not an AKA-aholic. Larry called me tonight. We've become friends over the last year and a half or so. I want to visit them but need to wait until work slows down. He asked me to tell everybody that they will ship orders or if they are unable to ship, provide refunds. The shipping may be slow. Please be understanding. A couple years ago one of the suppliers I work with lost his battle with cancer. It's not an easy journey but with our prayers Larry will overcome this disease.

Just a thought: maybe phrases like "death toll" (think you mean "knell", anyway) and "nail in the coffin" are poor choices, given the context.

It is highly unfortunate that Larry is in poor health, and I wish him all the best.

In other news, there are rumors of a certain well-liked company looking to purchase AKA. If it goes through, there could be some very exciting things coming.

Another small company or a large company?

It would be cool to see someone like Simon from Inception designs running AKA. He is all about American-made products and produces top notch stuff.

I don't want to get anyone in trouble by saying anything in case I'm not supposed to repeat this. I will ask the guy if he's ok with repeating what he told me.

Right. I've gotten the OK from the rumor source. I was talking with a rep from Ninja, the air/tank people. He was saying he had, "something really awesome for air systems coming out soon "

Me: "I hope it's in-line regs that work with the new proprietary BS from companies like Bob Long." at which point he said,

Ninja Rep: "Like if a company like AKA were to go on the market for sale? oh...would you look at that"

Me: "Aaaand my little ears just perked up."

Ninja Rep: ""

Me (via private message): "Can I repeat your rumor/non comment regarding AKA or will that put you in a bad spot? The people on MCB are very curious."

Ninja Rep (via private message): "Rumor is a rumor I didn't actually say anything so sure "
