Re: R.L. Winston
People stop buying toys when basic needs have to be met first.
The company I work for, a very diverse company at that, just layed off 750 people even though they are still in the black and growing (albeit, not as much as they would like, or are used to!)
I have a feeling this will be a thinning out period for many companies who cater to the leasure industry.
Rumor has it larger rod manufacturers have slimmed down on staff too.
On a tour of the little museum Winston has at the factory I got to see some of the rods they made to get them through the Great Depression of '29. I for one hope they still have that innovative spirit should things get worse this time around.
