Abstract

[no dateline] "Hutchinson talks like an ass. He thinks that all that is necessary to do is to go and ask a man to get a job." Gov't officials have heard so much about ELight that they've all decided to invite proposals from different companies. "Until we are prepared to compete with the others, and make some money out of it, what is the use trying to create business for their benefit?" National Theater has been visited by other companies; likely to go with USELCo.
