Dean, I suspect we may agree more than we disagree.   

One area of disagreement is that you feel the "loyalty" state has changed.  I 
don't.  I feel it is never been more than a mirage, a propaganda piece, an idea 
for the press and the public.  

The IBM lifetime employment mirage was always based upon an ever-expanding work 
force - a ponzi scheme of employees if you will.  Outside of IBM and government 
though the idea of permanent employment was never a fact.  The post-WWII boom 
made it seem real but it never was in any places I ever saw.
