Newton's Maytag plant closing
As none of you may or may not know, Maytag is my Hometown's only claim to fame, and believe me, they rub it in faces. Well, I don't really give a fuck because it's just some crappy washer/dryer/appliance company. But, Whirlpool bought it and they are closing the Newton, Iowa plant. What I don't understand is them closing something which is the only backbone for this white trash town, and the only thing this town is (barely) known for.
Our town's football team used to be called the Newton Washers For God's sake :/
