Love your graphs.  I posted some year-end reports yesterday, and it's interesting to me to see the arrow drop on inventory.  I see the same with yours too.  Nice post Leslie.

Leslie:  As Carla mentions, it's good to see SOME good news and SOME numbers dropping.  The right ones dropping is nice.  As always, your posts containing hard numbers and facts are easy to understand and follow, even for a novice or those outside the industry.  Hopefully future reports indicate even further improvements ...
