Since we're on the Chrysler subject:

Remember Lee Iacocca? He's the dude that kept Chrysler from going down the chute when it was swirling the bowl in the 80's. He was Time's Man of the Year in 1983, so now you have something in common with him. (Because YOU are Time's "Person of the Year" this time around. (no pun intended... and I digress....))

He has now written a lovely essay, called where have all the leaders gone?, which is a preface to his book of the same name.

Here is an excerpt:

Why are we in this mess? How did we end up with this crowd in Washington? Well, we voted for them—or at least some of us did. But I'll tell you what we didn't do. We didn't agree to suspend the Constitution. We didn't agree to stop asking questions or demanding answers. Some of us are sick and tired of people who call free speech treason. Where I come from that's a dictatorship, not a democracy.

It's about time some more people started making more noise. I think it was also Joe Biden yesterday who called for a Million Man March on the Mall with reference to the stem cell research stuff going on right now in DC...

More people need to say more.

Over the weekend, Mayor Rocky (SLC Mayor) was asked if he was using his position of power as a megaphone for his own personal views. He answered that yes, of course he was, and he was going to use every venue he had access to, including the mayor's office, to speak out on his viewpoints. Not sure I'm all about the mayor spending his pulpit time chasing his own agenda... but at least he's sayin' something.
