Dow Corning: From Class Action To Boycott?
The lawyer from Dow Corning Corp. looked very smug and self-satisfied in "On the firing line at Dow Corning" (News: Analysis & Commentary, May 29). But when he threw a monkey wrench into a commitment made to 400,000 women who are participating in the class action, he perhaps forgot to consider the business ramifications of alienating these women and their families and friends. We will be able to track both the business and its different products through any reorganization. The boycott that will result will amaze even the most astute lawyers and business managers of the company who are so pleased with their recent action.
