And I think you're familiar with our investment side of the strategy. We set goals aggressively and work very hard to achieve those targets. We won't rush, but I will tell you this is primarily for employees until we get to zero. And that's going to be harder as we move forward, but this is one of the things over the past five or six years I am most proud of. I'll show you another one in a minute.The other area that we had to improve on is our generation reliability. Back in 2006, our generation reliability was not where we wanted it to be. We set a goal to improve it by 50%. This is in time also when there were a lot of changes as far as environmental controls on the plants, major investments in plants. And for those of you that are familiar with generating units, as you take a unit down and put a lot of controls on it, it tends to operate sometimes not better than when you made the investments in the plant.
