I see that it’s an internal promotion of a person who was in leadership already during these recent, bad years. I wonder if the air up higher is any fresher? Certainly, the company needs a big gust of SOMETHING coming from outside its walls, and air is all I can see here, if that. Anyway, good luck, Remington. Once in a while you have done fine things, and it would be nice to see a revival somewhere.

Fantastic, meteoric rise to the top of a beautiful, historic company that has been destroyed by overweight management decisions over the last 10 years. Will he be given the keys to the casket? More young, inexperienced butt kissers are just what this formerly great company needs. I know a few folks that have progressed from “ya want fries wid dat” to general manager in only 6 mos. I should send them to Rem. They could be CEO there before sundown.


I wonder if he knows about guns.
