Fun with context.

(Or, "When empty PR quotes go wrong.")

Frank, to Thomas M. Mulligan of the LA Times in 2005:

"Being profitable isn't the point," McCourt said in an interview in his wood-paneled office overlooking left field. "The point is to at least break even and have a sound, healthy business."

As long as a sound, healthy business is one that hemorrhages cash to pay for the owner and his wife's lifestyle. Wait...make that "co-owners'." Almost slipped there, Jamie.
