    • Who are you kidding? Auto glass is in the tank
      because the players in that market allow it. State Farm,
      Allstate and other insurance companies have played the
      auto glass industry with the skill of a master

      It is time for the auto glass industry to stop
      operating under the "If I don't accept the insurance
      company offer someone else will" mentality. Your
      competitor is setting YOUR selling price.

      Stop the
      "We'll make it up with volume" approach. It has not
      worked. It will not work. Time to "Right Size" this

      • Did the problems at Auto Glass just pop up over
        night, or did Deckman just walk in the door and find
        that the fox was eyeing the chicken coop? Seems
        strange that things were just fine there until Deckman
        got involved in snooping around. One thing that is
        obvious to me is that the person or group set the
        original earnings estimate should be sent packing by the
        shareholders. As far as Deckman going in and cleaning house, it
        will take him at least two years to get back to
        previous levels.
