The Finch Formerly Known As Gold

Those who remained

Kerr-McGee and its 200 or so employees in Oklahoma City will soon be gone; by contrast, about 300 former KMG employees will likely be sticking around.

Tronox Inc., the former Kerr-McGee chemical division, spun off from the parent company last year, is looking for local office space for its 200-member downtown staff. (Another 100 work at the former KMG Technical Center on NW 150th St.) They've been leasing space from KMG on a month-to-month basis; the 100,000 square feet they need would take up only about a fifth of the Kerr-McGee Center downtown.

Hmmm. I wonder if there's any thought of reclaiming the Kermac name once the KMG-Anadarko merger is complete.

Speaking of Kerr-McGee, were you aware of Rob Smith's death? I've got it at:

I don't know how well or even if you knew him, but he has an alleged quote from you in his sidebar. And he was done in by KM...

I knew. (I mentioned it here.)

And I'll vouch for the quote, which comes from this piece.

Ahhh... Sorry I missed it. With moving my business over the past week I've missed a lot - now totally out of sync, spinning in a parallel universe and trying desperately to get back...
