It's not that American-made is or isn't good, really. It's that anything made "hostage," uncompetitive rates by an entire industry acting like it need not be globally competitive can't work in the long run. Well, welcome to the long run (today). From the perspective of union constriction of business practices for the past 60yrs, it's time to pay the piper. And, no Big Three Bailout Czar need be appointed. The bankruptcy court judge in the current setup will work just fine, as with any other business seeking reorganization under crushing conditions. This is exactly what should happen, I agree.
