Google shareholder wants two-tiered stock structure dismantled from the San Jose Mercury News covers how a pension funding holding a tiny amount of Google shares will push at the upcoming shareholder's meeting for the two tier voting structure to be dismantled.

And without the support of the big three, it ain't gonna happen. Hat tip to Kathryn Cramer's blog.
