Subject: File No. 4-583

Please note my bewilderment and shock when I found out that this un-democratic practice occurs on a regular basis. I always wondered why the executive branch of public companies were able to put through their self-serving objectives so easily when it was so obvious they did so for their own benifit... rather than that of the shareholders... the actual "owners" of the company.

Please add me to the list of those in agreement with File 4-583 to amend the rules where shareholders that do not vote have those shares counted by management as in agreement with their "recommendations".

NOTE: what if the various elections for public officials followed that logic.... we would be living in a dictatorship!!!!!!!

Thank you,

Ken Buttle
