50 years ago we used to speculate in school what would result from the constant push for automation to replace people in manufacturing plants. That's when manufacturing dominated Fort Wayne. Today after adding the unanticipated effect of moving plants offshore, we can see the result.

After spending my career in manufacturing, it's still diffcult for me to see how a nation can really prosper if it doesn't make anything itself.
