: Ted Turner is depressed. I own Time Warner stock. So am I. But not this bad.
Ted tells a bunch of newspaper editors:
“If I had to predict, the way things are going, Id say the chances are about 50-50 that humanity will be extinct or nearly extinct within 50 years,” Turner said. “Weapons of mass destruction, disease, I mean this global warming is scaring the living daylights out of me.”
Ted on Iraq:
“We spent $87 billion to blow Iraq up and then we spent another $87 billion to put it back together, and all to get one man and we still haven’t got him,” Turner said. “Talk about a failure.”
Yeah, that’s almost as much as Ted lost when he sold to Time Warner.
