Abd - I hate to keep repeating this but I can only share so much detail at this stage of the legal battle with Rossi. First of all, Cherokee and IH are separate legal entities. Second, I'm a shareholder in IH, not Cherokee. Third, I've been involved in investing with Darden for over 16 years and know the man very well. He is an incredible visionary, a great leader and a cause-oriented investor. He puts everything that he has into solving big problems. When he gets a return on a deal, he gives a substantial amount of the profit away to causes he believes in. He has infrastructure in Africa that invests in and teaches leadership, micro-economics, clean energy and education. I was at MIT not long ago and a young man from Ethiopia comes running up to JT, who used to run the Africa program as part of his IH training, and gives him a big hug. The young man was a graduate of one of the Cherokee programs and was completing a EE masters. Others have gone on to Harvard, Stanford, Berkeley, Penn, Columbia for advanced degrees then return home to help their country. All made possible by the wisdom, generosity and leadership of Tom Darden.
I really get steamed when I see knuckleheads supporting a well know lying cheat in his latest attempt to enrich himself. I am sorry that this emotion is reflected in some of my postings. Rossi took IH money, did not deliver on his commitments, has picked the wrong fight and is going down as a result.
I'd like to thank you for stepping into this mess and for attempting to help everyone process this situation. I concur the MTD was the excellent return volley from IH and can share the next round of salvos are going to be even more devastating to Rossi's rag tag, shameful and tattered story.
