In the last edition of Ensouth, we predicted
that tough times may shake out the weak, the dubious and the
incompetent. As it turned out, the tough times were more
tough talk than tough walk. As we enter the New Year, we
find that our absolute revenues are not impacted though our

Consequently, the subjects of
comment this time are more topical than current. First in

we examine the compulsions that drive promoters to return
better value to their shareholders. Next in
Limitless lambs for lions,
we examine how the entertainment industry prefers to

model to respond to changing technology. Finally, with
deliberate intent to sound an optimistic note as we step
into the New Year, we look at the radical changes that are
transforming our judiciary in
Winds of Change.
Happy new year!
