I see my satire was too subtle. I don't expect them to. I said he (as in Bates) believes CMK can be a "world class" producer (poking fun at Cline calling themselves world class in their recent document on their website) but that does not mean I think they can be by that statement. The ............... after that sentence was me displaying my disbelief that they can be a world class producer. Hope that clears it up.
