Lots of Chrysler News to Go Over, But Here are Two Good Pieces

I found the allusion to Heart of Darkness (or Apocalypse Now, if you prefer) in this article from the Automotive News a little over the top, but amusing nonetheless. It provides an interesting discussion of the first day's arguments in the Chrysler sale hearing.

Then, we have the overuse of the term terrorist in the email evidence (as described in this post). I guess we should be glad they didn't bring out Hitler or the Nazis.

If this guy was anywhere near New York or DC on 9/11, he needs his head examined!

As a point of comparison, football analysts toned down the military terms often used in football (blitz, shot, etc.) after 9/11 to recognize that, generally, in football nobody dies. Football announcers are not known to be particularly empathetic, but this guy from Wilkie makes them seem like innocent kindergartners.

Meanwhile, the sale hearing goes into day 3 at 9:00 AM Friday morning.

The end result seems preordained, but Judge Gonzalez is making sure that there is an excellent record for the expected appeal.
