Michigan has been in a recession for five years and this would really destroy the state if the big three don't surive.

This is a detail of the limeplant in Northern Ohio where my grandfather worked in the 40's & 50's.
It has changed very little. I remember seeing him there and he would buy me a candy bar from a machine covered in lime. He would have to wipe the lime off the glass to be able to see what was inside. Everything was covered in white lime like snow. I can still taste the acidity that was in the air.
