Back to the US

As everyone who hasn't been living in a cave for the last few days by now knows, Microsoft wants to buy Yahoo!

What is a bit newsier is that Yahoo's management doesn't really want to let that happen.

They don't have the final say in the matter. Of course, Yahoo isn't "their" company beyond whatever psychological identification they may feel with it. Yahoo belongs to its owners, the shareholders, and MS can go over the heads of management to bring this merger about.

Here's an analysis from the San Jose (Calif.) Mercury
Yahoo faces few options.

I'm interested especially in what the Mercury calls the "Disney ending." To what white knight might Yahoo possibly appeal? Hmmmm. Any ideas out there?
