Sayonara, Saturn and Hummer

What's the deal with Saturn and Hummer? Ladies and gentlemen, we have some serious overcapacity in the auto industry. I won't even mention basket cases like Saab and Opel (you know, the brand of motorized shopping carts).

Ah, Saturn… The wisdom of, instead of investing in better Chevys, adding another Chevy… Like Chevrolet didn't already have enough in-house competition.

And Hummer… Did you ever look at those cars? They're bodaciously ugly. And I happen to like SUVs in some perverse sort of way.

Hell, they're not even cars… They're — poor men's tanks. And did I mention they're bodaciously ugly?

You can do it, GM. You killed Oldsmobile. You killed Pontiac. Go get 'em, tiger!

(No, that was Exxon. But you get the idea.)
