Raytheon put in a parking lot section up front for hybrids, electric cars, alternative fuel cars, LNG cars, car pools, etc. Sweet.

Not so hot... the heat. It is freaking toasty in the lab this morning. Walking in the front door you get pounded by the heat which gets worse and worse.

now you have to eat even less food,, with all the exercise that you are missing from the new parking situation!

If Raytheon REALLY wanted to save natural resources and reduce carbon emissions they'd allow the gas guzzlers to park closer to the building so to reduce pollution! That extra 1/4 mile to the back of the parking lot (coming and going, so half mile) with my 2-ton three hundred and fifty cubic inch V8 really adds up! At the slower parking lot speeds the hybrids are running electric so no pollution so they can drive around cleanly! You can't actually believe that somebody would change their preference in an automobile because of closer employee parking; I for one however would be willing to change my parking habits for the benefit of us all!

It is just their way of saying thanks and doing what little they can to pay us back for our sacrifice.

What they should do is get rid of parking except for car pools and hybrids. Make everyone else leave their car at the edge of the town. Punish those without hybrids... maybe they should consider that when handing out performance reviews and raises.

What have you done to help give Raytheon a green image?

MAYBE if they gave me a little more GREEN I'd reciprocate!!!

Dang Norm, don't you do any work? You didn't even get into the office till after 1pm. Now you sit around all night and surf the web.

Maybe the big shots think they are God. You know... the whole, "God helps those who help themselves."
