But it would go to college campuses which I will continue to do.
There's reason to be optimistic a lot of young people no way.

But to think that next year and -- two years from now we're gonna have.

-- there will be a decision made by the people mostly the young people right now they're in college and getting out of college and what kind of a system we have.
