I knew this was coming...when companies stop answering to customers and start catering soley to stock holders they have a limited lifespan in a competative market.

The big 3 auto makers are where they are because of their own doing. In fact, they've done nothing but contributed to an already ailing economy by continually developing cars geared towards a performance market (producing more cars with larger engines and ridiculously large chasis) and developing fewer and fewer economy cars, all at exponentially higher prices. This is what they get for being the oil industy's b!tch...let their pimps, the big oil companies, bail them out.
