From what they've said in the past and confirmed on the conference call, I think that the company is really hitting on most, if not all, cylinders. 2006, especially the first half, will be a difficult year because of comparisons with 2005. But operationally and strategically, the company is poised for a terrific run once we work through this.Arch
