Boeing plans to move most of its defense and support-related services from Washington state to cities that include Oklahoma City and St. Louis.
Boeing said Monday the moves are part of efforts to improve the competitiveness of the Boeing Defense, Space & Security unit.
The company says about 900 jobs could move to Oklahoma City and up to 500 to St. Louis in about three years. About 2,000 employees could be affected by the move that also include jobs being sent to Jacksonville, Florida, and Patuxent River, Maryland.

Take a look at your signature the next time you buy something with a credit card. Maybe you spell out every letter. Maybe you just put a squiggly line. The other day, I drew a tree.
Signing is a very old ritual, according to Rabbi Pinchas Allouche. He's a scholar of the Talmud, a collection of Jewish texts that's over 1,000 years old.
The Talmud not only mentions signatures; it has rules for them. "A scribble is prohibited," Allouche says. The name has to be legible. "Just yesterday, when signing a Toys R Us receipt, I thought of the Talmud," he says.

Ronald Heifetz has been a professor of public leadership at Harvard's Kennedy School for three decades, teaching classes that have included aspiring business leaders and budding heads of state. Each year, he says, the students start his course thinking they'll learn the answer to one question:

A drive to keep a local shoe store chain in McAlester failed. Despite area business leaders' best efforts, the store closed Monday. The local Blockbuster video will soon follow suit, just as has been the case in other cities and towns.
