Damn. Ok, this raises a few questions:
- Which five states are not getting any F-35 money? What does it say about their senators? Hmmm.
- I wonder what the over/under should be on the total buy. Cut from 2,852 to 2,443 so far. I would have to guess that the over/under would be set at 2100. And I would probably bet the under. But if set at 2000, I might bet the over. Hmmm. Any guesses.
- I bet that the actual number of jobs is lower than 260k. Why should we believe Lockheed on those numbers when every other number has been, ahem, revised?
- Does the F-35 revise the old government calculation: a billion here, a billion here, soon you are talking about real money?
