> Are you > saying that Monsanto and AHP did not merge? 

Hi Kim, yes I am saying that the two companies did not merge.  When an
announcement is made publicly that companies are merging, I guess it
takes many months for the event to actually occur.  I don't know
anything about the reasons it didn't occur (I just work in the trenches,
detailing Advil to physicians).  I heard that the merger was called off
sometime in the last 2 weeks, via my company's voice mail network. 
Perhaps when a merger is called off the media coverage isn't as
splashy.  One last comment, before wrapping up this rather off-topic
post.  AHP did acquire a company that prepares herbal supplements last
year, and will begin marketing several well-accepted products within the
next year.  Seems a little ironic.
