The only light I have seen Phil bathed in, is that of a leader who came up through the ranks, has worked remarkably hard to lean Boeing into a diversified and profitable machine. He seems personable and remarkably smart and a strong yet compassionate laeder.
I might have missed something, I am just unsure what your comment is based on, fact or opinion, please elaborate.

Maybe Boeing's move to Chicago will serve as a wake-up call to our legislators in Olympia who refuse to move forward on any type of meaningful transportation program. The fact is, the state of ground transportation in the Seattle area is deplorable. Boeing was probably just firing a warning shot, saying that something needs to be done to the transportation infrastructure if the Seattle metro area wants to attract and keep high profile, high paying employers.
There is no "good time" to get anywhere via ground transportation in the metro area. Traffic starts backing up on I-5 before 6 AM. After a brief lull in the mid to late morning it starts going bumper to bumper again until 6 or 7 PM. If you work in the metro area and have to commute to the 'burbs, you can count on at least a 3 hour commute each day.

1: Boeing is no longer just a commercial airplane maker...they are a very diversified company that now reaches all over the aerospace and defence industries. Chicago is a more central location to deal with government people.

Im proud the greates plane and defense maker has moved to my hometown! Go Boeing! It just shows that Chicago is an awsome city that is great for buisness. Boeing now joins McDonalds, Sears, Motorola, United Airlines, Amoco, Bank1 which all make their home in suburbia Chicago or the city itself.
