What did I say about corporate jets being an efficient mode of transportation for corporate executives? Ford, GM Chiefs to Drive to D.C., but Should They? This is all about show and politics - not practicality or efficiency - to appease the grandstanding blowhards in Congress! I still don't think we should give any bailout to the auto manufacturers. Let them figure out how to adjust their products, their processes, their labor agreements, etc. to meet the market demands. If they can not, let them fail. Someone else will pick up the pieces - the better pieces - and meet the market needs. In the end everyone will adjust to a better situation that will be had by prolonging the problem with "free" money out of our pockets.
