    Of course, they seem to be following in the footsteps of GM, so maybe their future is bright?

    It does sound a bit like they're using GM's playbook. Whether it happens or is sustainable remains to be seen and the same can be said of GM as well.

    This is actually quite hilarious. UNLESS you work at Ford's, that is.

    Long ago I tried to stop asking myself, "Do these a-holes REALLY not know how freakin stupid this sounds?"

    But I stopped trying to stop myself from asking what any normal halfway intelligent person would ask, and just went with the flow.

    Meanwhile, since Alan departed, Bill has reverted in many ways to a sadly typical low-IQ third-generation Scion of genius. When you live in a low-oxygen bubble, you start thinking funny stuff.
