Thought of the day

Last week, a bunch of postal workers dumped hundred's of pounds of mail to a tea party group advocating postal service reform.

Probably not a coincidence Eastman Kodak announced that it was looking into bankruptcy protection.

Where are all the people trying to protect the jobs for all those Kodak employees making outdated film and cameras?

Both businesses are dinosaurs of a business model that passed a decade ago.

But in one case, the business will be allowed to simply drift into history books as a once great giant of industry (I believe they were once in the NYSE 30). While in the other, the business will get propped up as some kind of necessity to national security. You can decide which is which.

Mean while, I should probably get that unknown roll of film in my desk drawer developed before it's too late.
