    Let the speculation begin.

    So they don't want to be a real estate management company. Probably a good idea.

    Aww... No speculation, really. Kodak started themselves down this path long ago. They just didn't realize it at the time.

    Uh-oh. "Innovative solutions" is what Kodak needs to concentrate on? And Cuomo thinks they are going to attract business to New York with a tax rate like that? Good luck on that. He would do very well to take a tip from some of the southern governors on how to attract business away from places like that. Nikki Haley would be pleased to help on that. No, this is not a rant.
    Tennessee got more Volkswagons to build for their efforts, SC took Boeing away from Washington State. It's just too easy.
    I'd hate to see Kodak Park fall into EPA hands.

    Hopefully some part of it will survive, like the Wurlitzer factory and the facade of the tire factory in Commerce CA. It would be sad to think the only evidence might be street names as so often seems to happen.

    Really? They did?

    You should get out of those self-isolating woods of yours and come visit Everett, Washington and take the Boeing factory tour. You'd be staggered and amazed at what they are currently building inside those sub-continent sized buildings large enough to have their own private weather inside...

    Then when you've finished that tour, run down Interstate 5 to Renton and see what that Boeing factory is up to...

    They got the 787 plant. A real coup for a place like SC.

    BTW--I'm not looking to start up a routine some people seem to get annoyed at me for, so don't worry. Business has changed in recent years. States are competing to get business away from the states of the "Industrial Revolution" era. Dog eat dog, and that kind of thing.

    "Public tours of Boeing's Everett factory are available seven days a week. The Everett, Wash., facility is home to the 747, 767, 777 and 787 Dreamliner production lines." And Renton is home to the 737 line.

    Yes, they do assemble a few 787s in SC. Tokyo got a Disney theme park too. But it's not the real Disneyland.
