But stockholders care about substance as well as style.And Southwest pays dividend by sticking to one strategy: Southwest Airlines has been so enormously successfully because its low cost enables it to charge low fare.Low cost is the soul of our existence, and we know it.We spend as much time arguing whether we should spend 5 dollars versus 7 something as we do whether it should be 5 million versus 3 million, you know, an aircraft.It paid off. example, at the 93 annual meeting, Southwest declared a stock split and a 7 percent increase in dividends.But that philosophy, says Dallas stockbroker and business analyst David Johnson, grows out of Southwest unusual place in the transportation business.It an airline which competes against the car.There an argument that Southwest Airline isnt an airline, and it not in the convention of, you know, American, Delta, ed...that sort of thing, truly more like a bus company.Bus company, in that it frequent, it cheap. The competition, er, is either a couch or, you know, a good sturdy Buick.So just from the get-go, it a quick, efficient airline. But again, it not a conventional airline.And if Southwest business is unorthodox, its notion of corporate culture is just as novel.Colleen Barret says employees believe in an identifiable Southwest spirit, which Berret 60-person culture committee seeks to preserve.Now the bigger that we grow, and the more sp out that our system becomes, and thus the further away from Dallas that our employees are based.I grew increasingly concerned that they wouldnt have a real sense of history.In the beginning, we just hired very spirited people who were warriors, and who banded together.We now make a very concerted eft to hire a very definite-profiled type person.And we probably spend more time on hiring than we do any other single thing at SouthWest.How much of that is an outgrowth of Herb Kelleher personality?I think that the personality, the spirit, the culture certainly emanates from Herb, but if Herb were gone tomorrow, I dont think it would stop.And Im quite comtable that our employees would... just...almost...uprise if there were any drastic or dramatic change. I dont think theyre tolerate it.Herb Kellerher says Southwest is trying to refute almost the entire history of humankind by not letting success lead to the kind of pride, which ;goeth bee a fall; in revenues.And more often than not, theyre doing it with a laugh and one eye on the bottom line. 83。

  • I'd like to thank the Radio and TV Correspondents Association providing dinner tonight. And I'd like to thank Senator Webb providing security.I'm glad to see everybody here is enjoying themselves. Don't think I haven't noticed all the drinking that's been going on. In my State of the Union address, I said we needed to increase the use of ethanol.Well, where should I start? A year ago, my approval rating was in the 30s, my nominee the Supreme Court had just withdrawn, and my Vice President had shot someone. Those were the good old days. Sorry the Vice President couldn't be here. He's had a rough few weeks. To be honest, his feelings are kind of hurt. He said he was going on vacation to Afghanistan, where people like him. You in the press certainly have had a lot to report lately. Take the current controversy. I have to admit we really blew the way we let those attorneys go. You know you botched it when people sympathize with lawyers. Speaking of subpoenas, it's good to see Speaker Pelosi tonight. Well, some have wondered how the two of us would get along. Some say she's bossy, she's opinionated, she's not to be crossed. Hey, I get along with my mother. But between the Congress and the press, there is a lot of scrutiny in this job. Not a day goes by that I don't get scrutineered one way or the other. The press is a lot tougher the second term. It's reached the point I sometimes call on Helen Thomas just to hear a friendly voice. No matter how tough it gets, however, I have no intention of becoming a lame duck President -- unless, of course, Cheney accidentally shoots me in the leg. Hey, I have 66 days left in the White House. So technically, I'm a temporary guest worker. Considering what's next -- President Clinton, of course, wrote a very successful presidential memoir, with ,000 pages or something. I'm thinking of something really fun and creative mine -- you know, maybe a pop-up book. I'm considering a number of titles -- which do you like? "How W Got His Groove Back." "Who Moved My Presidency?" Or, "Tuesdays With Cheney"? By the way, I'm not sure whether or not Senator Obama is here -- the last I heard he was not coming to the Radio and TV Correspondents dinner -- not enough press. People Magazine recently had a photo of the Senator there on the beach in Hawaii, his sleek, hairless pecs glistening in the surf. It shows how biased the press is. Have you ever seen a shot like that of Denny Hastert? Bee I sit down, I do want to say a couple of things. I'm very happy one person who could not be here last year is here tonight, and that's Bob Woodruff. Bob, we know it hasn't been easy. We admire you all the more what you've overcome, and what you're still overcoming. And, Ava and Christine and Nicole Bloom, many of us knew your dad. I know life is hard without him. He was such a fine guy. But one thing we've all seen this evening is that he has fine daughters and I know he would be really proud of you. Someone who is not here tonight is Tony Snow. When Tony called me and told me the outcome of his surgery, my heart just sank. But I know Tony is a fighter. And, Tony, we're all looking ward to the day when you come back to the White House. Last week we all heard the news about Elizabeth Edwards, and again, your heart just sinks what she and her family faces. And so, to Bob Woodruff, the Bloom girls, Elizabeth Edwards, Tony Snow, and of course, our men and women in unim, Laura and I and millions of other Americans are praying you and your families. May God bless you, and thank you very much.
