Figures. Just another way to get the bottom lines to look better to the
shareholders and such. Akin to decreases in the packaging contents
sizes and increase in prices. Lower the cost of the components and
ingredients, etc. Many folks, for example, never notice that packages
of something went from 16 ounces to 14 ounces to 13 ounces, and so
forth, and yet the prices remain the same or even increased.
