According to Mark Cuban, owner of the Dallas Mavericks, Byrne spent a 61 minute conference call with investors railing about:
Miscreants; an unnamed Sith Lord he hopes the feds will bury under a prison; gay bath houses; whether he is gay, does cocaine, both, or neither; phone taps; phone lines misdirected to Mexico; arrested reporters; payoffs; conspiracies; crooks; egomaniacs; fools; paranoia; which newspapers are shills and for who; money laundering; his Irish temper; false identities; threats; intimidation; and private investigators. All in 61 minutes.
According to CNN Bryne also sent "increasingly shrill pronouncements about nefarious short-sellers driving the company's stock into the ground" After the conference call Mark Cuban short-sold 10,000 shares of Overstock.
The sad part is, he is just as qualified as Margaret Spellings on education issues.
