Waiting for Icahn, Day 99

May 15, 2008

icahn2.jpgOk, we understand that Carl Icahn has been a little bit busy, as today’s Yahoo news illustrates. But ever since that memorable February day when he promised to deliver his trademark brand of incisive commentary to the blogosphere, we’ve been waiting. For 99 days now we’ve checked out The Icahn Report, only to find that same taunting message: “Blog coming soon.”

He has blamed the delay on his lawyers: “Every night, I write for an hour and they tear it up.

He has promised that the blog was “a week or two away” — that deadline passed yesterday.

Mr. Icahn, we respectfully submit that today’s letter to the Yahoo board would make a stellar debut entry. Take it from us: cut-and-paste is to blogging what proxy fights are to activist investing.
