I would hope so--they're one of the "gutsiest" companies we have left in the 
USA. A long-time favorite.

I don't think Kodak is strong enough (or willing) to do so--this might be a 
test of my prognosticatory powers...if it happens, someone can tell me "I 
told you so." :-)

Totally agreed, Rafe. Not that they didn't partialy bring it on themselves 
(but I'd select Polaroid as exception to that). IMHO, what the cure would be 
is a world-wide "minimum wage law" that would put everyone on a more-level 
playing field. Something like that might bring all workers up to something 
comparable to EU and Japanese standards--American workers would appreciate 
the raise, probably. And I'm already sorry I brought it up. ;-)
