In reply to Teri Robinson
Investor's Business Daily reported on 13 May 2002 (page A4) that "IBM sources" stated the 8-10K layoffs are "low-ball estimates" and that "anywhere from 15,000 to 50,000 employees may be dumped before the downsizing is over." It also reports that "Severance pay in the upcoming layoffs will be tight."

Has technology made transportation more or less safe?
Traveling by all modes of transportation has become riskier with each passing year.
In general, transportation safety has been improving steadily, despite some failures.
Some modes of transportation have been improving while others have become less safe.
We may have reached a tipping point where more tech means less safety.
Don't blame the tech -- greedy companies haven't done adequate testing.
Government regulators have not been playing a strong enough oversight role.
