Hmm. Well if we're going to pull stupid out-of-context
quotes out for derision, that ploy can be put in the anti-MS
direction as well as the anti-Sun.

Yes, Mr. Cullinan, I suppose that if Coke owned 90+%
of the grocery stores, supermarkets, and vending machines,
yeah, I suppose we just
might insist that they devote shelf space to Pepsi
right there beside their own.

Get a life.
