dear mr. stark,
thank you for your reply. pursuant to your offer to help with "additional information or questions pertaining to this matter," i have several questions.
since this matter has to do with Boston CHICKEN, is the SEC required to render an advisory opinion under The Bankruptcy Act of 1938?
if so, how can i (as an individual shareholder) have my opinion heard by the SEC prior to an opinion being rendered?
also, i recently received a response from Lawrence White, CFO of boston CHICKEN, on the matter of "transferring my ownership without my consent," and he said, "... there can be no assurance that existing stockholders will retain any value."
what quasi-governmental agency might protect my retirement plan from such an atrocity?
thank you for you help. i shall await your advice.
