I said that.

There is a long term plan, we never write it down because people ask us 
about it :)

I don't see why not if that is what they want to do.


 From *my* POV I don't see the point in trying to make gnc something it 
isn't or can't be.

Matt, the seniors definitely have direction, they have a plan, they are 
going somewhere.  I'm hoping they get their work done before I get so 
old I can't contribute :)
