I believe the Ford executive office is still at The Rouge, and I seem to
recall it still has Edsel Ford's desk in it.  It overlooks part of the
factory.  I imagine it isn't new.

Even if a building has positive pressure, that doesn't mean that some
areas won't have negative pressure.  I've been in a few that had errors
in design, and even equipment failure can change things.

In any case, the story is supposedly one that Bill tells in response to
people labeling him a weakling and a dummy.
