    I'm trying to reach a GPS producer (see last paragraph and video) or an OutFront producer, regarding CNN's story on John Paul DeJoria and his work in Appalachia. I think both you and he will be glad we made contact.

    Here's a link to a project video, which will help you understand. I believe it was posted live the same/previous date your story aired. You must listen to the entire piece to understand the potential economic benefit to the people of the region.

    This project adheres closely to the mantra espoused by Fareed Zakaria, when he states that Americans must produce unique items which cannot be outsourced ... because they have been individually created by those who have placed their stamp of authorship upon each item.

    Thanks so much! –

        Thanks so much, Amar. I did not expect a reply on this post. Please watch the entire piece in order to understand the link to Fareed's comment that Americans must place their individual stamp of authorship on the works of their hands ... this project would provide a means to market/introduce themselves and those goods ... writerblc@yahoo.com.

    It will take years for the country to recover from the tripple disasters in 2011. The people are patriotic and willing to sacrifice. They will get by.

    The earthquake hit them VERY hard. Don't understate that. People don't realize the majority of the specialized labor and engineers in some factories were killed at some of these companies, like Foster... a MAJOR electronics OEM. Recommending they cut worker benefits when the surviving workers are doing relatively fine in spite of lowered exports is frankly a moronic suggestion. What's the point to having higher exports if your labor force ends up as exploited as China's? Is GPS just interested in corporate officers and old money sitting around living off of their annuities?
