Bloomberg is really running with this, they updated their article 3 times whle I was writing this one. If you are really interested check there for further information. --Sfullenwider 01:57, 4 January 2006 (UTC)Reply

  • I'm based in Midland, MI where Dow holds it's world HQ's. I'll see if I can snag an interview with one of the "higher ups" to respond to this issue sometime this week. --MrMiscellaniousHappy New Year02:15, 4 January 2006 (UTC)Reply
I just got a response from a Media Contact at Dow, which gave me a reply:

DATE: January 04, 2006
FROM: Dow Media Relations <>
TO: MrMiscellanious
SUBJECT: Your Inquiry Regarding Engelhard Corporation

Thank you for contacting us. However, it's Dow's policy not to comment on speculation regarding possible investment opportunities. Nor do we comment on the actions of other companies.

Kind regards,

Should we add that to the article somewhere along the line "Dow declined to answer a query by a Wikinews reporter, saying it is company policy not to comment on speculations"? --Deprifry|+T+ 20:06, 4 January 2006 (UTC)Reply
