    To me, this was the most encouraging statement in the message delivered today by Bill Ford. It’s realistic and prudent to underscore that becoming a sustainably profitable company can only happen with a long term plan that focuses on customers.

    Like Mark – I’m hopeful that the organization will make good on Bill’s promise.
