An end or new begining?


Tomorrow GM will file for chapter 11 bankruptcy protection. This possibility began long ago, but became very public discussion a little over six months ago. We all hate everything about this for all kinds of reasons, but in many ways it really marks the end of the great industrial expansion of the United States. The bigger question is "What will we do next?" As Americans we have never really liked to sit back and wait for something to happen. We tend to try to make things happen. I am hopeful about what we may do next.
