Come on guys, that's terrible. Lots of people had their jobs end without receiving a final paycheck. Shannon Best's name will be associated with this corporate disaster forever. Give them a break. I will fly my Best kites with pride for their lifetime.

Funny though.

As a guys who owns and has owned a great deal of Best gear, and plan to move to Eleveight to support some of the people hit by the scandal, I find this comment utterly hilarious.
