A blow like this is really deflating...

...to the economy.

Nobody is surprised by this news. Given the economy, their reaction was automatic.

My brother works for them, and I would have got a job there last summer. Might be a good thing I didn't move for that job. Who am I kidding? I should have taken the $22 an hour and ran with it.

I played corporate league softball against a JC team. They kicked our asses most of the time, but we figured the amount of enjoyment we got out of making fun of their name was well worth it.

The first time I ever heard of Johnson Controls I was listening to the car radio and some guy said he worked there. I thought, 'Johnson Controls, snerk.' At the time, I was cutting through a parking lot in lieu of hanging of a u-ey. The sign on the building that the parking lot belonged to - Johnson Controls. True story!
