Cultural change?? I thought all one had to do is show the customer how
much money they'd save then you'd get their business, unless the customer
doesn't need to save money. I thought this whole process of getting
business for RP was a simple Darwinian exercise - survival of the best and
cheapest (define best how you will).

Hmmm...I see hordes of salespersons grumbling over their martinis right
now. Although you may be on the right track - getting more business
(especially new business - i.e. the "fun" industry) will always be an
uphill battle. Those who can't do it (or won't for whatever reason - did
you say lazy??) won't "evolve". Hey, pretty Darwinian, don't 'cha think?
Remember I'm just a student - I may be completely off here. All I know
is what I read from the comics.
