The diamond and specialty minerals stocks box score on Thursday was a mediocre 84-98-128 as the TSX Venture Exchange fell seven points to 582 while polished diamond prices fell 0.1 per cent. Ewan Mason and Ken MacNeill's Star Diamond Corp. (DIAM) rocked the market late yesterday with word that Mr. MacNeill, the company's founder, president and chief executive officer, will take his leave at the end of the year.

Retirement, especially for a promoter several years shy of eligibility for Canada's old age pension, is often a euphemism used to describe a fellow being nudged toward the door -- and when it is talked of as being a mutual decision, that is usually code for quite the opposite.
