Hendersonville Times-News article on manufacturing and air pollution, leading off with a quote from Lexington Home Brands president Bob Stec, whom I interviewed a couple of times in my previous life.

Stec and a group of high-level employees purchased Lexington a few years ago with the lofty, but extremely difficult goal of maintaining strong domestic manufacturing operations.

"What good is fresh air if you have a lot of unemployed people breathing it?" asks Stec. "Domestic manufacturing is at a cost disadvantage anyway, so when you lay on all this environmental stuff....it becomes the straw that breaks the camel's back."
