The place you will always long for but never be able to go.

This is sad but BP Solar closed their Maryland manufacturing plant for solar cells and other solar power equipment. This means 350 employees in a hi-tech, manufacturing industry will be out of work. At work, it's the first major closing I've dealt with for a customer. We've lost some small customers entirely (40 or 50 ees) and had groups lay off handfuls of employees, but no one has closed an entire plant, cutting their work staff in half. Sad.
