Should do nothing and world where we were there are people Ballmer immigrant orders for football we were in garbage out. They have no different. The tobacco companies are all. The people are strong and I'm currently can be like with. A really good. Photo shoot or chip or go to. We understand what you mean now we're. We'll -- don't. This 765. Million dollar the figure that was announced and when it was announced to us in the media you know a few months ago it was announced.

But who are white strips work those guys who persecute partners sold there are about. All of Medicare. And that the white strip to work for their own conference it's a multibillion. Dollar industry that has not taken care of the -- locally.
