It is just not happening. I have told the papers that they should stop wasting paper. We don't have any interest in selling Kevin.

That's that then. Nothing more to say-- oh, hang on. There's more ...

Our view is that we want to put a great team out there, but we are not saying 'we have to make a ton of money'. Our goal across the board is stability.

Got that? Please, please, please don't throw him in that briar bush ...
