    Here's the article that I was recalling.

    So, since the operating deficit was around $10 billion last year, how would you propose to bring it into balance (we'll just assume that the pre-funding requirement is abolished)?  I favor a "balanced" approach.  Which means service cuts and possibly some rate hikes.  But you have to be careful about rate hikes because you don't want to destroy demand.

    Anyway, as I've said before, cutting one day of service is a "no brainer" in my book and is far from what is needed as I believe that would only close 20 percent of the gap.

    We cannot solve our problems with the same thinking we used when we created them. Albert Einstein
