. dave, you were asking earlier about china. i do not take potential competition from china lightly, but i am absolutely confident we've got better cars than china does. and i'd much rather have our problems than china's problems. that i'm confident about. on the other hand, the one thing i will say is that if they need to build some stuff, they can build it. and over time, that wears away our advantage competitively. it's embarrassing -- you drive down the roads, and you look at what they're able to do. the place that we stayed at for the apec summit was this lavish conference center, and it probably put most of the conference centers here to shame. they built it in a year. now, you've got an authoritarian government that isn't necessarily accountable. i understand we're not going to do that. but if they're able to build their ports, their airports, their smart grid, their air traffic control systems, their broadband systems with that rapidity and they're highly superior to ours -- over time, that's going to be a problem for us. so, fred, i guess the answer is, i'm going to talk to
