Liberty is back - They're trying to gain full control of SIRI.

Could be good, could be bad (I'm betting on bad)...

Full disclosure - I own several thousand shares of Sirius/XM.

That being said, I have mixed feelings about Liberty. ON the one hand, I don't want to be squeezed out. On the other hand, when they did the same thing to DirecTV, the existing shareholders made something like 100% appreciation in their shares in a year or year and a half.
