Hey, the bottom line of any commercial venture is to make money. There's
nothing wrong with that, its just capitalism. The best way for a bidness (I
am from Texas, after all), to make money is to increase revenues and lower
costs. If TRF converted a large space of unrealized potential revenue into a
source of revenue, then they made a good business decision.

(Who was a Liberal Arts major, not a Business major but hey; you don't have
to be Donald Trump to figure that one out.)
