I just finished reading Rob Preston's editorial "Get Used to Offshore Outsourcing" (Jan. 22). Unfortunately, the global economy tiger we helped build
is now attacking us. So far it has gutted most of our manufacturing industry, completely destroying our small appliance, textile, leather and shoe,
clothing and most of our high-tech component industries, to say nothing of the attack on heavy industry. It'll attack the white-collar industries
next. In 10 years we will have as little IT development in the United States as we have TV assembly.
