  • Not the best Studebaker reference...

    ...but nonetheless a reference. [V] These events are happening in the shadow of Studebaker's old plant, a magnet for these fellows as they eke out a living in facilities that once produced the cars we know and love...before those facilities are demolished. [B)]

    Another good reason to wish Studebaker was still in production in South Bend! BP

    We've got to quit saying, "How stupid can you be?" Too many people are taking it as a challenge.

    Ayn Rand:
    "You can avoid reality, but you cannot avoid the consequences of avoiding reality."

    G. K. Chesterton: This triangle of truisms, of father, mother, and child, cannot be destroyed; it can only destroy those civilizations which disregard it.

        Even more bad news:
        http://www.wabashplaindealer.com/art...ews/state2.txt

        What troubles me is that these people were stealing. The city has issued contracts for the demolition of these facilities, and part of the bid process it the reclamation of materials salvaged from the demolition. These people, by going in there and 'scrapping' are stealing material from the contractors whose profit margin is largely determined by the amount he can reclaim in the recycling process.
        Worse yet, is the media portraying the thieves in a noble way, as if they were providing a community service. That is not right.
        I have sympathy for the people that have to scrounge to survive. I look for abandoned Stude's all the time. But I don't go on someone else's property and just take stuff.
