The Finch Formerly Known As Gold

You can have it, I don't want it

I guess they didn't love it anyway: Six Flags, Inc.'s attempt to auction itself off, and perhaps thereby thwart a takeover bid by Washington Redskins owner Dan Snyder, closed with no bids received.

Mark Shapiro has now eased into the CEO's chair, replacing Kieran Burke; new faces on the Six Flags board include former Interpublic chairman Michael Kassan, consultant / NFL quarterback / presidential candidate Jack Kemp, and Hollywood producer Harvey Weinstein.

No word yet as to when the Six Flags corporate offices will be moved out of Oklahoma City.
