A few weeks ago I met a guy in Kentucky who’d lived through every trend of deindustrializing America.
grew up about 65 years ago on a tobacco and cattle farm, but he always
liked engines, so even while in high school he worked 40 hours a week in
a garage. Then he went to work in a series of factories — making
airplane parts, car seats, sheet metal and casings for those big
air-conditioning fans you see on the top of buildings.
