If you were supposed to be getting married and found your future spouse out on a date with someone else,  there is probably a good chance you won’t be getting married.   One could alway hope.  Perhaps it was a business meeting.  Perhaps it was an old friend?  Perhaps a long talk with a former love?

But in all probability, your fiancée is probably going to call the wedding off.

It is in this framework that we hear that Kinder Morgan,  the only approved suitor for the Port of Wilmington, has just bought out Copano for $5 billion.   Let’s see.  The total cost of their Wilmington Port investment up front fee was $16 million or 0.32 of One percent of what they just spent on buying out Copano.

Today they signed an agreement totaling $30 million investment in improvements down in Southern Texas with Calpine, a power generating company.

At the same time they were meeting with the Diamond State Port Authority here just off 13 south of  State Road….

The Wilmington Port nor Diamond State Port have commented at this time….

Looking at the money there is a good chance we just got brushed off……
