Like this painting Stephen, it captures the emptiness of the future of big petrol car manufacturers. It is sad news indeed. It is a pity GM didn't go into new technology, electric, solar etc and GM would be employing people and at the head of the pack instead of lagging behind the Japanese.

You are so right. They talked about slowing SUV sales and making more small cars in the paper yesterday. Seems a little late to me. We will see. Americaa's greed culture has finally caught up. We need CHANGE now!
