I’ve wanted an illuminated clock on my living room wall for the longest time. I’d hoped to buy it at a local store, but they didn’t have what I was looking for.

Let’s face this fact; there are a lot of jobs that have been eliminated that just aren’t coming back. Nope, nada; it ain’t happening. Let’s face another fact; manufacturing in America is dwindling, and there’s not going to be a renaissance for that either.
