Typical corporate America move. One day you have a job, the next you are in the unemployment line - thank you very much!

I had to chuckle that they are going to start delivery in Lockeford, Ca. about 20 miles from me. There are about 900 people in the area. 🤣

My take on why it would be chosen:

Low population density = lower chance of a casualty

Plus they would only have to dole out 900 free Amazon Prime Air memberships so it would be used.

Apparently still doing it, Steve, maybe not so good, according to this TX TV station. BTW, Walmart uses drone contractors to make their deliveries. KBTX (Bryan, TX)

Yep. Mostly farm community. Very few residential homes. Doesn't say much for their confidence that this could happen in urban areas.
