      And their company motto, ""Discrepancies Are Not Actually Nonconformities," is a classic.

      Decades ago, when a simple 50-user text processing system from Wang cost $250,000, we had to use the Proof of Concept prototyping standard from Air Force Systems Command for every module of COBOL programming.

      These guys went Galt on a non-fireproofed battery box that could have brought down 787 Dreamliners with hundreds of people on board.

      Have they forgotten how to implement a quality control system ??? Have they forgotten W. Edwards Deming? Mr. Ishikawa?

      Also, as a matter of interest, why are we not bombing Vietnam ?????

      Are we out of bombs?

      Can't find the offending factory (because it's located in teh rear of a Kiyomura K.K.-owned suchi parlor) ??????
