I'm sorry, deposit, did you just say that NLS had record sales in Q4 '02? And same thing for the 2002 annuals? They did, of course.
Maybe you're referring to Q1'03, which was down 3% from Q1'02?
Are these things typical examples of what you seem to believe is an "accelerating contraction in sales?"
Instead, aren't you in fact a short-and-distort artist who will do anything to avoid posting actual numbers to back up his argument? You literally fit the encyclopedia definition of a shortr-n-distortr to a T.
