Of the four days Dale Brogan had scheduled in New York City, three were committed to meetings and negotiations over a proposed merger.  His company was entertaining these discussions to fuel media and investor interest.  Before he even left for the city, Dale’s CEO had pulled him aside to let him know there was no way in hell he’d see his company married off.  “Try to sound like we’re taking them seriously, though,” the old man had said, laughing.  “Talk them up, give them the works.  After all, we’ll look like shit if they don’t make a good offer.”
