Re: Latts & Atts is GONE!

If BB made a sale and never got the money before signing over the business, then one has to wonder about his common sense. Seems BB was desperate and took the first offer.

I think that BB was very desperate to sell and the magazine wasn't making much money. High pulp and paper rates and lower subscriptions.

Also, I bet he was building his new Shannon boat by giving the building suppliers contra advertising. (free parts/labout for free advertising) It's not hard to see this when you look at his magazine. Then, BB wrote an article about him not being able to afford the new Shannon and he put the unfinished boat for sale. He got over his head and put L&A for sale and took the first offer...which was obivously conditional and went sour.

It will be hard to recover at his age. Really sucks for him. It's not like he didn't work hard to become a success and still make time to play.
