    That fun in the sun will only keep you there so long. Margins are too thin in this very competitive industry to not explore cost cutting moves, if so, savings are many quarters in the future so no excitement. Many more will follow if the pols. there keep using taxes on business to support their re-election.
    Any land left in Texas??
