Todaqy is a rainy day and you have to just plain live

with it.

Which is no big deal, but today I am really not in the mood for rain and wind.

There are things in life you can't change and just have to learn to live with them.

Days like today are one of them.


There is a company named Olin that makes ammunition among other things. A couple of days ago they announced that they are moving one of their centerfire ammunition plants out of East Alton, IL and down to Oxford, Mississippi.

While the announcement came within 24 hours of the union there rejecting their contract, I would bet that besides having to deal with a stubborn union, the local tax base has a lot to do with the move, also.

Mississippi is not the wealthiest state in the union and they are certainly willing to make things easy for a company like Olin to move down there and bring 1000 jobs down there with them.

I'd just bet that Mississippi decided to cut their taxes down if they moved operations down there.

Funny how that works.
