Good cartoon. Why is it that everyone can see the foolhardiness of this deal EXCEPT HART? Or is there more to this deal than what HART is adimitting to? One must really wonder what MOTIVATED Don Horner, Toru Hamayasu, and company to say (with a straight face) - "Ansaldo is really the best company to do the job." when everyone knows the MAJOR problems facing the company and its parent, and, the availablily of two, ready, willing and able companies (Bombadier and Sumitomo), one of which can do the job for less. The only justification for going forward with Ansaldo that Mr. Hamayasu keeps repeating is that.... "Don't worry, we've got performance bonds to make sure this contract is completed." The situation is akin to HART telling Honolulu citizens "Don't worry about getting on this airplane even though it there are mechanical issues and it may not have enough fuel to get to the destination.... we've got enough parachutes aboard." Why aren't they even willing to reconsider putting Honolulu citizens aboard one of the other two airplanes, both more mechanically and financially sound, and one at a lower fare? Something smells.
