    Re: Yo, stinky...

    Rob, you have told nothing but truths! There are
    still people who believe that BD is a well-managed
    company and has competent managers and do not believe in
    the truths. They are just dreaming and they will see.

    • "Medical Systems revenues for the fiscal quarter
      were $502 million, or 3 percent below last year, and
      Preanalytical Solutions revenues increased 2 percent to $131
      million. The performance of Medical Systems and
      Preanalytical Solutions was impacted by the **discontinuance of
      certain incentive programs with distributors** in the
      United States..."
      [**emphasis
      supplied**]
      Question: If you discontinue incentive programs to
      distributors, why is it then that BD would not actually make
      MORE not less money.
      I'm obviously missing the
      obvious.
      Thanks.

    • Hey robbashir, are you sure you are spelling Gettle correctly? If you aren't, why not? BD email directory has it listed as Gettel. Be careful when you drop names and attribute statements to them.
