Mitch Albom is oh so right.

I wanted to share this with you because it touches on many of the problems we, in the Midwest primarily, face. Mitch Albom is so erudite and bright so when he rants about our politicians taking our manufacturing away from us and sending it somewhere overseas and we, the USA, becoming only a service economy and the problems with that, it becomes frightening and you should listen. I'm reminded of the golden rule of etiquette that you should dance with the one who 'brung' you to the dance. Manufacturing or making things is what got us where we are, the greatest country on the earth. Why besides making rich people richer are we giving it all away? The portion that is relevant begins about four and a half minutes into the video.
