Good question, too. With the Buffett and Watsa mini-bail-out, how long will USG run? i.e. how long does USG have for the wallboard market to turn around?

Sorry I have not checked into this yet, but was just wondering if anyone had made a projection here. It looks like several years to me.

Secondly, is the fiscal stimulus program of president-elect Obama not going to (greatly) increase the requirements for building products? Doesn't this become a much better investment as a result?

Victor.
