Brian Gill: There’s a reasonable chance we can’t help you, but we know more about it than you do, it’s financially risk-free, and nobody else is going to help you at all. It wasn’t because I was trying to make a bunch of money at that price point, because we weren’t. We were going to lose money at that price point, but we were going to lose a small amount of money, and we were going to learn the process, we were going to get exposure to casework.
