Hello All,

In my last post on General Electric I wrote that GE swapped RCA's home electronics division to Thompson Electric Corp. for Thompson's medical imaging business. I have recently discovered that Thompson Electric is, and has been for decades, a wholly owned subsidiary of GE(!). Thompson is, for all intents and purposes, a dummy corporation that GE uses to avoid certain sticky legal problems in its business dealings. So, boycotting any RCA product will directly hurt GE.

My final, complete report on GE will be made available by the end of this month.
