She has has a rare skin exact diagnosis will come in the next few she has a few challenges ahead, although she has made remarkable progress in 3 days according to her doctors and nurses. Otherwise: 10 fingers, 10 toes, strong lungs and heart, and an appetite like her dad's! Mom is having an especially hard time as she just lost her mother 2 months ago.

Thanks for your prayers.

Am I the only one who thinks that congressman and senators making the auto companies bend over and take a whupin' is the pot calling the kettle black?

Funny, I don't remember this level of chastisement leveled at the banks/investment firms/insurance companies by congress when they wanted their bailout...come to think of it I don't remember those companies having to really go and ask, congress was pooping their pants trying to shovel the money at them. If Freddie Mack or Fannie Mae stopped real fast Barny Frank's head would be permanently lodged where the sun doesn't shine.

Come on guys, can the double standard crap. While the auto companies aren't blameless in the creation of their current condition and I'm not saying they should or should not be bailed out, at least these companies produce something tangible...something other than smoke and vapor...and employ millions who put in an honest days work to produce an honest product. I really wish the employees we hired to do this job (congress) had asked all these hard nosed-hard hitting questions back in October instead of getting on their knees.
