10 November 1999
|I'm sure you can draw a conclusion by the debris we've been bringing
in, which is fragmented. We are obviously thrilled to have quickly coalesced
a world class board around our popular technology. We are looking forward
to leveraging the assets and strengths of our new board as we release
the next generation of our products. We don't give this information out
to people over the phone. We are in control of the technology, and we
don't want to engage in germline gene therapy. We are not a zoo. We cannot
sit idly and wait for the whole process to be solved somehow magically.
We knew if we did that, we would be crucified by the federal government.
We remain entirely skeptical about their intention to ever implement the
agreement and bring about a devolution of power. I am deeply committed
to an aggressive, forward-looking space program, a space program that
dares to push the limits of the heavens. I need each and every one of
you. We still need a good privatization plan. It will be expensive for
the first few years but we think that by perhaps by 2015 it could drop
down to roughly US $20,000 US for a couple to come up for a week, which
would include transportation. Such violence shakes the foundations of
all institutions and disrupts the fabric of our society. This is called
justice. The consequences of a referendum, whatever the outcome, we will
accept. We followed the rules. They'll have to live with it. There's humility
in winning, but we are living it up right now. History will show we were
right. Much as we'd like to believe it, we can't live without the bomb.
