While I'm glad to see less spending on machines of war, I'm always sad to hear about working people losing their jobs.
I dpknow next to nothing about what was done at this place, but I can't help but wish that somehow Boeing, and other defense related companies, could somehow turn to channeling their production towards the sciences, aerospace, etc. keeping workers employed, but creating different equipment, machines, etc. But now with no more shuttle, and what seems to be little desire in the US for scientific advancement, that's likely a pipe dream.
Wishing peace and new jobs for all the workers who will be affected by this. Too many people falling on hard times in this country.
“Peace is not the product of terror or fear. Peace is not the silence of cemeteries. Peace is not the silent result of violent repression. Peace is the generous, tranquil contribution of all to the good of all." -Abp Oscar Romero
