    I really hope that the good times in Asia and other countries will help the U.S. economy. Our current economy still needs alot of boost in order for more people to get jobs and get out of the rut. We need to be able to add more jobs nin order for people to come out of the short sale and foreclosure real estate market. The semiconductor industry in Asia is good news if that means our Semiconductor company will make more money and employ more folks.

    Otherwise, we don't know what that really means to us.
