The Indianapolis Star has been covering this story for some time - kind of strange.  Here is their latest article -

Swenson actually claims in the latest 8k that Biglari Holdings is closer to bankruptcy today than in August 2008 when Sardar assumed control.
Is Swenson really that stupid?
I don't even know where to begin with that assertion.
God help BH shareholders if he pulls off a miracle and takes over the board with his million dollar stake.

Hello, all. Long-time lurker, first-time poster.

Just a heads up. I hold my BH shares via Interactive Brokers and received an email today with the subject:

   "Proxy Contest Notice: Biglari Holdings Inc. - Groveland Group"

which includes a link taking me to an online voting form at https://www.proxypush.com/ where Swenson and company are listed as the "Management Recommended Vote" option.

It's unfortunate that the form was so confusingly designed to make it appear as if BH's management supports the election of Groveland! Perhaps I've completely misunderstood, but this appears borderline unethical.

I'd like to electronically vote my shares in favour of BH's management. Is there an easy way to do this is?

I received our BLUE proxy cards from Biglari yesterday in the mail. 

Don't remember if we received the Groveland proxy cards with that first letter they sent.....if we did I think I burned them.   :o

Not sure if you're joking or not as the quote is funny.
It's good to have some people against Biglari so the board doesn't become an echo chamber.
Disagreement should be encouraged.
That being said, I'm still at a loss they think BH is closer to bankruptcy than in August 2008.
Financing was impossible in August 2008.
I really hope Swenson doesn't believe such a claim.
It'll be interesting to see the vote count.
I wish I could make some type of bet on him losing as Biglari will take zero chance of losing. He'll capitulate to Mario if he has to.

I really voted for Groveland. Not that it matters. Big will win.

But when someone says they own a stock for "entertainment" purposes, I can't help but think of that as poor stewardship.

and it hurts you so much that I voted my "two shares" for Groveland that you just have to respond with biting remarks.

Oh well. Back to my popcorn.  8)
