Good move to include parallels with the auto industry.

For those who wonder..

Shinola was THE brown shoe polish used through WWII and Korea to shine the boots of our brown shoe army and the boondockers (once the 'fur' was burned off) of the USMC ...

Hence came the slogan of those with limited sense of smell and probably IQ as not being able to tell 'sh!t' from Shinola'
“During times of universal deceit, telling the truth becomes a revolutionary act.”
- George Orwell

Naval Aviators - the last of the military to wear brown shoes and "aviator greens" -- have always known what Shinola is. Until those Kiwi brassards took over, that is...

"...reached out and touched the face of God." (And, for those of you who have asked, yes, this is indeed me... )
