Interesting how costs have been bandied about, a few days ago
it was $2250 now it's $1250.

Please tell me the name of an employer where any employee who
is NOT a salesman can go to his or her boss and say "Can I go spend a 
thousand bucks on something that has no justification for existence 
other than we might need it sometime in the future?"
