having been employed with the state of NC (i
can't speak for the state of FL), i would like to add
the following thought to the discussion about
if the savings were zero (or even negative a bit),
the move to privatization is still attractive. states
fear being sued - and there are many reasons for
lawsuits - you can image what they are. also, most states
just do not want the headaches associated with running
i thought today's forward leading statements were

Tax rate 3% lower sequentially is how they got to EPS

went through in October. I am not if WHC is
selling below growth rate or not until strangeness of

the fastest growing service sectors. This represents
a buying opportunity, and time will tell the rest
of the story.
Q: Would you have sold Microsoft

WHC is focusing on mental institutions in England
and elsewhere. Maybe to be a leader in this area? In
the England contract, see last year's news release,
they manage a health theraputic wing or extension
add-on to the prison. Could that be a trend?
