    Is this a good thing? Maybe they'll forget to crimp those primer pockets.

    The reason I ask is because when there is a change in ownership, the first thing that the new owner/operator does is shed employees.

    Good, Northrup-Grumman has more money than they can count, so send some money Winchesters way.
    Hamlet and King Lear are two of the best works of literature that there is. And in American elite universities, Shakespeare is being reviled, and that is a new evil.
    America cannot go on being free, when it is always taking the foundations out. If Shakespeare is the enemy, then I am the enemy too, because I love the guys works.
