I'm not sure I believe that. It's just too staggering. 80% losses are no
way to run a business or an industry. Don't get me wrong; it probably
wasn't very long ago when those numbers were accurate, but I HAVE to
belive that things are better today than that. They have to be with all
the advances we've made, don't they? ( please say yes )
