My post the other day, "A Plague On Both Your Houses" stirred up a few folks – imagine that – me writing something that riled someone up! The gist of the post was that there is so much blame to be handed out in Detroit that many people are fed up with both management and labor.
A particularly riled up reader by the name of Rick Bohan called me a "right wingnut" for placing any of the responsibility for GM's demise on the union. Ironic that just last week I was being hammered for being against capitalism after having made a few caustic comments about Wall Street. In his comment Mr. Bohan wrote,
"Adult A gets laid off and sent to the job bank. Giant Multi-Gazillion Dollar Corporation B has no plan as to what to do with Adult A and, in effect, says "Sit there". But Adult A is an idiot.
