Letter to the Editor
With cars lasting longer than they used to and the economy in a recession I question if there is enough of a market to keep all three of the “Big 3” automakers in business. Maybe instead of having all 3 burning through taxpayer money we should let them start to fold and give a few billion to the last one standing. If GM and Chrysler, who are considered the weakest, were to fold the Ford and other US automakers who employ Americans in the south would get a boost. I just don’t see where we can afford to pay Detroit to make cars that no one is going to buy.
