	The machinations of holding companies, consolidated
conglomerates, and megacorporations are tough to pin down.  But once
you draw a map, you notice that most things funnel up to only a
handful of companies.  

	I remember being thoroughly confused when I learned that all
these companies that were owned by Disney were also owned by ABC.
Anyone here remember the old Mary Tyler Moore show?  All companies
were "a wholly-owned subsidiary of the Ramjak corporation."

	Just wait, and Ramjak will rise.
