2:30 PM -- Have you noticed lately one of the annoying trends of carriers pointing out the huge revenue growth they've experienced from "strategic services?"

Does this really mean anything other than the fact that you've cherry picked a few areas that are performing better than the rest of the business? And if these strategic services are performing so well compared to other services, are you going to eliminate the other "non-strategic" services that have been dragging your overall growth numbers down? Is it really worth pointing this "strategic number" out if its performance isn't eventually going to be an indicator for the overall unit's performance?
