Photo from the past: 4H convention in 1941 at Iowa State (That is sorta ironic that Darla just mentioned their 4H club.)
Irony: a technique of indicating, as through character or plot development, an intention or attitude opposite to that which is actually or ostensibly stated.
It is irony, I guess, that I think I am a writer and have a very weak or limited vocabulary.
It is Irony that Sears and Roebuck started off as a mail order business then went big time in the brick and mortar stores and are now fighting for their life against basically a mail-order business AMAZON.
It must be irony that the Post Office (USPS) management years ago decided there would never be enough business in delivering packages and cut back by raising the cost of mailing a package. And then years after that decision find that packages have financed fleets of planes, trucks and deliveries for UPS and FEDEX.
It is irony also that the USPS is now delivering for AMAZON on Sundays in many cases.
It is Irony, and sickening, Detroit auto leadership considered imports trash and not competition. Instead of reading the writing on the wall, they helped make a wasteland of Detroit. CEOs and Other leadership are paid to see into the future. Register trends, note changes in their industry and adjust.
I am not sure it is IRONY that A man called Walton in Arkansas, started a business that is putting others out of business because they did not take him serious. It is hard for my mind to wrap around the idea that Sears and K-Mart with stores already built, logistics in place for storage and delivery of goods to their stores can be overrun by an upstart called Walmart.
I would have thought the CEO of K-Mart would remember they put Grants, Roses, and a few others out (or nearly out) of business to get where they were and be looking over their shoulders for the next up start, but they missed it.
Funny that… Walmart is playing catch-up with AMAZON, will they make it, or have they waited too late to provide next day delivery?
