Rosanne: That’s such a non-American way to think but it is the best yeah because I hate the other one you’re right. The other one’s terrible because it does like oh look you did everything against the rules and you paid for it which is not a message we want to share but the idea that maybe you achieved. It’s a little Jonathan Livingston Seagull. You’ve achieved the peak and now you move on to that next plane that we we don’t know. So we can’t understand.
