Re: Boeing Considers Closing 787 Production in WA

With the corporate offices being in Chicago, expanding the SC facilities does make a lot of sense. It's a much shorter flight from ORD/MDW-CHS. Or if they could get out of their lease in Chicago I'm sure the state of SC would give them a sweetheart deal on moving the headquarters.

It's hard to argue with the logic. You can either have enough water flow and spend less time with it running or not enough water flow and spend more time with it running. With some hotels it is barely more than a mist and takes forever to take a shower. And if I'm paying the bill, you stay out of it.
