Desperate Liaisons

G.M. and Chrysler...together?


  1. Yo, GeeWhy -- you need another "i" in the title. "Liaisons."

  2. Thanks...7:30 am on a Saturday is clearly not the time for me to be breaking out the French. Actually, anyone who saw me in action in Sr. Grace's French class at Powers knows I should probably stick with English.

  3. I'm trying to find the wisdom in this merger. How will GM reconcile yet another set of competing lines? With GM stock at $5, it makes more sense for Renault to buy GM, since Renault has few, if any, competing brands, and they'll get a huge dealer network to sell their efficient diesel cars.

    It doesn't matter how much money a GM-Chrysler would save if they continue to lose their derrières in the marketplace.


Thanks for commenting. I moderate comments, so it may take a while for your comment to appear. You might enjoy my book about Flint called "Teardown: Memoir of a Vanishing City," a Michigan Notable Book for 2014 and a finalist for the 33rd Annual Northern California Book Award for Creative NonFiction. Filmmaker Michael Moore described Teardown as "a brilliant chronicle of the Mad Maxization of a once-great American city." More information about Teardown is available at
