What I just read to you recently about--sounds from what you just
said--you know, the thing about you were considering spinning it off
because of its capital requirements--sounds inaccurate!
It wasn't really we were considering spinning it off
because we had to, it was just--
You had this offer.
It just looked too good to us to turn down, if it was for
real. I'm never--I couldn't swear to you that it was for real, but
somebody at Weyerhauser mentioned the figure of a billion and a half
Was it--you mean one of the Weyerhausers themselves?
Somebody--I don't know who it was at Weyerhauser. And
Arthur talked to me about it, and we both agreed that if anybody
wanted to give us that, we would accept it quite happily.
You said that Arthur, in addition to wanting to buy that oil
company, Easeon, that there were a lot of things that he wanted to
buy. What were some of the things he wanted to buy?
He spent all his life buying things. He's forever buying.
Arthur Temple thinks money. Period.
