    Has Robert Paul Laitao left Apple 3.0 and Braeburn group?

    @Manfred Schwencke: I hope that I am not being presumptuous, but my understanding is Robert Paul Laitao left the Braeburn group. I believe it was Robert Paul himself who told us this information. I hope he has not left Apple 3.0. I have not seen him comment for a period. If he left, it would be a significant loss to the group. Additionally, where are the females of this group? I haven’t seen anything from the two Kathies for a long time, and that bothers me. PED, we need more women in this forum. What affirmative action steps are you taking to get more women members involved? I find that women usually bring a different perspective to investment issues.
