    Lived in my neighborhood in the Detroit area before we moved to Cincinnati

    If any of you want a good read on the Auto industry I can't recommend "The Reckoning" by David Halbersam enough

    I read his autobiography many years ago. I thought it was good at the time. I have The Reckoning in my digital library. I'm sure its good. Just about everything I have read by Halberstam is very good.

    I've heard from a couple of people that Iacocca's biography is amazing

    Nah... he was in the luxury part of the area, where the Kalines and Howe's resided. Our street wasn't even paved (remember those oil sprayed streets of the past!!)

    The world is a messy place. People are inconsistent and complicated. Maybe we should see how different things could be if we gave grace and forgiveness to our fellow human beings when they fail to be perfect in our eyes. -- me

    The lowest acceptable payroll amount for ownership to show they are not greedy pigs is 15 million more than they are currently paying. No matter what that currently is.
