Times are tough all over. Wall street folks are looking at the mess they have gotten into. People are cutting back, clipping coupons, dialing down their discretionary spending. We have cut back on travel, and dine out less.
ACES is pretty much all about discretionary spending, no one really NEEDS to go fly a flight simulator. We get that. But we still need to pay our rent, and our employees.
