    And Jack this is Darren. You will see that stringent cost control continue until we see conditions improve even throughout Q1. As we look at (inaudible) and when we look at what's played out this week with many other public companies announcing and giving us all some much-needed information about what's happening in October, we will keep cost control at the top of the list, like we always do. And certainly network optimization is good timing for that cost control, because it's not only building density in the network as we've taken these -- as we're on track to take the 25 terminals out that we've already guided to for this year and then we'll immediately start working on the next 25 right after that. It also eliminates redundant costs in our network. So as we are in an uncertain economy moving forward, network optimization will be a help to our cost control focus.

    Probably have to sell these small terminals at discounted prices. No one wants terminals anymore with less than probably 50 doors. Too inefficient. Most LTL companies now want more territory in larger terminals, which makes for longer peddle runs, but less linehaul routes also.....

    How come the analysts never ask the question, how do you optimize a network without doing a merger? Now of course we all know what the final outcome of this is, but obviously the density they speak of will not be created solely by the cohabitation of a building.

    At which point do they need to report their ultimate goals to the shareholders?
    We all see the writing on the wall.

    IMO , we will be one company before the contract expires. We basically are now, no more Holland or New Penn Salesforce's or executives.
    They can piss all over everyone and tell us it's raining but the grand design is just to obvious.
    I can only hope they keep the regional brands for the next day service on the 4 new regional divisions they have created in the United States.
