EQC has embarked on a crusade to destroy me because I have been the most vocal and effective critic of EQC and the nincompoops running it.  For instance, I pointed out on this blog that Ian Simpson squandered incalculable time and energy trying to figure out what kind of animal EQC wanted to be while […]
