    So one gay guy buys another gay guy for couple billion. What do I have to do to get bought off?

    Michael Eisner is my Disney CEO. I loved how he was so into the parks and grew them in a major way. And he green lit Splash Mountain so I will forever love him. Iger is certainly cementing his legacy with deals like this though.

    The Renault company was founded in February 1899 in France. Five months later, Fiat was founded in Italy. A proposed $35 billion merger would create the world's third-largest automobile manufacturer behind Volkswagen and Toyota.

    The deal would involve no plant closures but a statement didn't address potential job cuts.

    Early this morning, Fiat withdrew its bid to merge with Renault. Financial Times quotes an unnamed "person briefed on the matter" as saying the bid was withdrawn because the French government and unions were "doubtful" about Fiat's reassurances that no jobs would be lost. I'm doubtful that is the real reason. And don't ask me to explain why the link says "Are you a robot?" I can't.

    From a purely Formula 1 fan's perspective, Fiat owns Ferrari, and Renault is one of the big competitors to them. So I don't know how that would've worked.

    Elliott Management owns Waterstones Booksellers, which was founded in 1982 and now has 283 stores in the UK, Ireland, Belgium and the Netherlands. Waterstones is profitable, although not by much. Waterstones CEO James Daunt will also head Barnes & Noble. Can he make the chain profitable? It will be a, um, daunting task.

    Barnes & Noble sold to hedge fund Elliott Management for $476 million
