Bennett' company is involved in property, medical buildings, medical research and equipment, which is one of the fastest growing industries in the OKC area. Do not know if he has been hurt much by the latest economic problems.

Yea, but Aubrey still has hundreds of millions and is still one of the highest paid CEO's in the country but speaking of coming around, looks like another Washington fat cat was lining his pockets while the citizens of Seattle were getting bent over AGAIN....

"Washington Mutual Inc., the largest U.S. thrift, paid Chief Executive Kerry Killinger $14.2 million in 2006 as the company struggled with losses from home-mortgage lending and cut more than 10,000 jobs."

http://seattlepi.nwsource.com/busine...80_wamu20.html

Speaking of losers...UW is now 0-6, WSU is now 1-7, the sucky Seahawks are 1-5 and firmly establishing themselves as the worst team in the NFL. The Mariners ARE the worst team in MLB and the Sonics bailed for greener pastures.

Seattle.....taking suck to a whole new level

Bennett's not the loser....

Loss of WaMu a blow to Seattle psyche

SEATTLE (AP) - First, Boeing Co. Then Safeco Corp. and the SuperSonics. Now Washington Mutual.

"Seattle lost a piece of itself today," said Allen Stover, 60, who has banked at WaMu since he was a kid, as have his parents and grandparents.

On Friday, while withdrawing cash from a WaMu ATM machine, Stover lamented the loss of yet another Seattle institution, one with roots dating back to 1889.

"It's kind of demoralizing," he said. "It's going to change the way people look at things in the city."

The takeover of the nation's largest savings and loan by New York-based JPMorgan Chase isn't just a black mark on the economy but will hurt Seattle's self esteem.

In recent years, Boeing Co. moved its Seattle corporate headquarters to Chicago. Boston-based Liberty Mutual bought Safeco Corp. And the team formerly known as the SuperSonics packed its bags and moved to Oklahoma.

"We're a bunch of losers," joked Seattle economist Dick Conway.

Clay Bennent is still a Million Dollar Champion. Hate him if you must, respect him because you have no choice.

Do you hear that sound RBP? That is the sound of The Thunder rumbling in an arena NOT in Seattle.
