In related news, Pontiac is also over. This doesn't come as any surprise at all. To anyone. Except the sphinc who just bought a G6 coupe. "Look at my bitchin' ride, yo!" (moments pass) "Doeth!"
In more related news, everyone is fired and somehow the American taxpayers will own a majority in GM. Let's quote sphinc up there... "Doeth!"
