Slitting Your Own Throat
But considering that bowling is a blue-collar sport, and that they've just put a bunch of those people out on the street, isn't this an example of shrinking one's own market? Sure, it's "only" 110 jobs and therefore a small portion of their overall market, but when so many companies are engaging in similar behavior, it's gonna have an effect.
Oh well. Instead of ranting about the death spiral of American industry, I should instead find a way to make it enjoyable. Like by selling, Idunno, T-shirts or something. I could put an American flag and some smart-ass slogan on them, and then get them produced off-shore.
