    Del, have you seen this? Sounds like Boeing’s pals in Congress aren’t thrilled about the decision.

    Feh. Or meh, whichever is appropriate. The appeal certainly isn’t unanticipated, and naturally they are going to express themselves in the strongest terms possible. It’s a global economy. As some commenter pointed out at the Seattle Times website, it’s naive and silly to expect the military to provide itself with weapons, equipment and supplies solely out of what’s made exclusively in the USA.

    We’ll see. Who knows, maybe it will be overturned. We were disappointed a while back with an Indonesian firm that was supposed to be doing something big out at Brookley. I believe the “Gatokoko Drive” street sign still stands – we got a little premature in renaming Brookley Drive :)
