http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/business-34552523 Who remembers the words of Billy Joel's Allentown? "Well we're waiting here in Allentown For the Pennsylvania we never found For the promises our teachers gave If we worked hard If we behaved So the graduations hang on the wall But they never really helped us at all No they never taught us what was real Iron and coke And chromium steel And we're waiting here in Allentown" Maybe we don't need a steel industry no more. They've found a way that everything we ever need can be made from re-cycled plastic. Ships tanks and cars. It tell you a lot about our nation when there isn't a steel industry that thinks there's going to be enough work here to keep it viable. Not even one from the third word. God help my children if there's ever the need to get dragged into another war..
