Good. I thought it was just me who questioned the outrage. Afraid I might be called a corporate whore or something. You know how it goes.


I'm remined of the story of a labor leader touring a new auto factory and the CEO of the company points out the many robots used in manufacturing. The CEO says "Someday soon we will build our autos soley with robots and we won't need your people anymore". The labor leader smiles and says "How many autos will your robots be buying?" Some corporations have shot themselves in the foot with outsourcing, building their plants overseas and laying off many Americans. Now they wonder where all the consumers have gone. Duh! They're in the unemployment lines.
