LemonMeister United States says:

Ron Burkle's poison pill reaches into other businesses. Ron Burkle & Bollenbach are on KB Home Board of Directors when he built this Lemon. http://www.akbhomesucks.com he has never answered a single letter sent to him. B&N customers to expect the same customer service. Google "KB Home Sucks" I'm not the only one abandoned by Burkle and KB Home. Just because your a Billionaire does not excuse your behavior, obviously the billions were made on the backs of the small guy. Ron your a disappointment not a savior of society.
