Greg Meffert, 2006:
“A shark can’t breathe unless it’s moving. There’s a part of me like that. I’m going to have to be doing something or I’ll go nuts,” he said.
Damn...is everyone watching the Discovery Channel?
Michael Dell said the meeting was only about the use of technology in education, though a Dell Inc. memo indicated that Michael Dell was briefed before the meeting about the company's sale of video camera "housing units" to New Orleans.
