Former controllers are driving cabs
in Lansing, Mich., selling bathroom fixtures
in Long Beach, Calif., hanging wallpaper
in Atlanta, pipefitting in Drexel Hill, Pa.,
baking in Honolulu, roughnecking
in the oilfields of Oklahoma,
substitute teaching in Hot Springs, Ark.,
selling cars in Detroit
and underwriting life insurance in Baltimore.
When I peddled eggs in East Pittsburgh,
I'd meet up with many people
who worked at Westinghouse.
They greeted me like an old and trusted friend.
They'd say, "Margaret, if you tell us
those eggs are fresh, we know they're fresh."
I thought: It's good to have
that kind of reputation. It's good
to be able to look people in the face,
to shake a worker's hand
with no need to apologize.
