These aren't new rumors. In the wake of the failed UA/US merger they have become commonplace. But I don't see anything dramatic happening right away.
Wolfman and Gangrene have promised not to break US up into pieces, if you can believe anything they say. I think there is a lot they can do, if they will do it.
I have said this before, and I'll say it again: with good, forward looking leadership US has every possibility of not only surviving, but prospering in the future. I doubt, however, that Wolfman and Gangrene are capable of providing the leadership needed.
Flying Colors Forever!
