@JessicaLynn - Every time I hear about a merger or a corporate takeover I always think about this one scene in American Psycho. A lady in a bar asks the main character what he does for a living and he says "murders and executions" and she thinks he said "mergers and acquisitions."
The business world can be pretty cutthroat, no doubt about it. However, I know sometimes a merger can be beneficial to both companies. So it's not all bad!
