Greetings, Joe.  I was surprised you requested that we be friends.  I accepted, primarily because it allowed me to directly comment to you on DE.  Coincidently, I had just read your bio again (had previously read it after noticing a comment from you on another post) as I anticipated commenting on your "Manage and motivate them..." blog.  Man, it is strong!  It definitely reads like a resume, vastly superior to mine.  If even kicked up my "BD".  (That's "Biography Dysfunction," not to be confused with the well-known and infamous "ED"–although they're close.)

I have one question, and your answering it would do wonders to satisfy my curiosity about the collecting of friends on DE. The question is why did you request to be my friend?

Hey Joe!  Great job with the TrueCar thread.  I had no idea that they were as far off on the pricing as they are.  We need to keep up the pressure!  This business tends to get outraged and then move on to a new topic.  Happy selling!   -Mike

Thanks for the add, Joe! Great to see owners who share so much valuable insight. We've lived cross country but only visited Sacramento passing through on our way to Reno. Hope your fall season there is a profitable one!
