I didn't see this coming!
While the Katz's were involved in the Dan Klein feud, it does seem to me that Allan would be a step up from Kim Krull. There might be less feuding.
I also like that he is independently wealthy, and as a former CEO has very good speaking abilities.
On the downside, he is awfully full of himself (likes to tell people he is a Yale grad, which to me is a negative, not a positive), but then, who isn't. ;)
Is Katz higher on my list than Dernulc? I like that Katz isn't a Dumey guy, but then he doesn't have skin in the game like Dernulc has. I think Dernulc has more of a track record of reasonableness, and perhaps actually walking away from a feud or two. Dernulc also won't have Krull as vice chair, nor will he use George Janiac in any capacity.
