Pre-Christmas home shpping sales up 50%.Old management would have said something like year toyear gross sales are expected to fall by 20%.But who cares if it is window dressing. It is the waythe game is played and it's a job that has to bedone. I'm glad to see that the new managementunderstands this.I think it is great that they gotmentioned on CNBC and believe that it will open higher. Butfor myself I have some questions about this increase.For example, FTE's are up 20% from last year so onewould expect an increase in year to year home shoppingsales. How much did these additional FTE's cost?It's promising that the growth in sales outpaced theincrease in FTE's but how agressive was the merchandisepricing? Does this increase mean we will have aprofitable operating quarter?Can these increases besustained?Oh well, who in this market cares about suchmatters. They got mentioned on CNBC.
