This board shows a lot of intelligent attention to analysis and to the intangibles of running a manufacturing conglomerate like CSL. I've come to CSL via other smallish manufacturing companies like FSS and DOV. CSL has an excellent record of achievement in increasing shareholder value and dividends. The one thing that worries me with CSL is the increase in debt. The truth is that in good times we all act as if they'll continue forever. CSL isn't alone in this: debt is up at many other companies now, and lenders have been as lax as borrowers. I think CSL management will now look to reduce debt, and it may take a couple of years to get some breathing room. I've been impressed with the forthrightness of management about the problems. I'm gonna buy some shares of CSL today.PWebst25@concentric.net
