Corning has benefited from the stimulus package as part of the energy efficiency credits as well as some of the first time homebuyer tax credits. Not to mention a lot of its research was funded by the Depratment of Defense. I hope when it creates new jobs the expansion @ Kentucky plant was just the first of many steps to bringing some jobs back to the US taxpayer.

In the new world order, companies are all about profits, not usually any kind of concern for workers or the country. A company shows concern when they get a tax break or they can pay off a local politician for favors.

So there still isn't a real use for this stuff. Unless you consider "picture to the edge" TV screens important? AND it's going to be made in Asia and imported. AND cost more.
