    It is not the same everywhere. There are many
    companies that are exciting to work for, have an enthusiasm
    for their customers, and their business, and
    developing new technologies. They're on the cutting edge.
    Safety devices are not cutting edge. Look at companies
    like Molecular Device, PE Biosystems, Agilent, even
    the dreaded Beckman Coulter. Look at what they bring
    to market, talk to their sales people. BD used to be
    like these companies, the "One Company" approach has
    not worked in the past with other comapnies, is not
    working now, and will probably be tinkered with again
    before all is said an done. Market specialization, and
    diversification in the biotech marketplace is essential for BD
    survival. The fact that BDB is a business in excess of $1
    billion dollars should offer some clue. BD used to be the
    great company that Cleteo dreamed it should be, it
    wasn't long ago the stock was $80! Oh, and in my
    opinion, my analysis of the business is correct, $27 a
    share yesterday, get real!
