Merck/Schering-Plough People?

Posted by Derek

Kim Girard, a reporter from CBS Interactive is doing a story on how people are coping with the merger - if you'd like to speak with her, she's at (de-spammified): kim.berg30-at-gmail.com. I didn't have any direct knowledge to help her, so I offered to post this to see if she gets something useful. . .

Remember the ending scene in the movie Apocalypto? After surviving gauntlets, near beaheadings, arrows, poison darts, the warrior is chased on to the beach by the headhunter party...only to discover the real danger. The Merck ships have sailed in and the SP people need to retreat to the jungle.

Sounds like an episode of 'Lost' to me..
Oh, how apt, an episodic cliffhanger that goes on too long and someone dies in every cycle.

Unfortunately, I keep thinking of the scene in The Stand where a bunch of army people are held hostage at a TV station and subjected to on-air execution, only to be "saved" by another set of army people.

I'm not the most hopeful person, though.
