I'll see if I can get a favorable ruling on this thread being up for a few days.

Both my wife and I had worked at EY and we got this note today. Would say it's one of the reason's why I obtained a CHL and w/b working with Texas legislators to get the option to OC in Texas. I am pretty sure I met Ms Lee at AON - they handled our company insurance at Samsung Telecom. The office was so high up you had to go to the elevator lobby half way up and transfer. I remember in our Agent's office you could look DOWN out of the window and see the Statue of Liberty down there - about 3 inches tall between your thumb and finger.
