Some interesting articles in today's Detroit Free Press. Unusually for the Freep, it is actually allowing a few shots to be fired at the Big 3 and the UAW. Loans give GM, Chrysler 3 months | Freep.com | Detroit Free Press Someone needs to watch over changes at the Detroit 3 | Freep.com | Detroit Free Press Detroit 3 can regain trust with great new vehicles | Freep.com | Detroit Free Press Gratitude for an auto rescue from a most unlikely source | Freep.com | Detroit Free Press Particularly interesting (though a little short IMO) is Tom Walsh's call for a Car Czar to ensure that all the different parties around the negotiating tables between now and March 31 will have their collective heads banged together when head-banging is required. Under normal circumstances, what we would now see is 3 months of turf war followed by a collective round of finger pointing when the deadline passes with no progress made. Clearly, this is not an option on this occasion unless the parties concerned actually want the autos in Chapter 11. A Car Czar might help keep all eyes on the ball. This will be an interesting 3 months.
