Every town in America would drop their drawers and bend over if any big company showed them some love.  Hell, for that matter, that's essentially the qualifications to be a politician these days, will you bend over and show corporations a good time?  We're like the nerdy kid at the dance, walks up to the pretty girl with the big knockers and says, "uh, you probably wouldn't want to dance with me, would you?"... and the pretty girl and her friends all die laughing as we sulk back in the corner plotting our next move to be one of the cool kids.
