    what do you expect when people consider "cable" to be a necessity of life?

    North America has been living in a dream world and this is the inevitable result.

    Perhaps, as a society, we will emerge from this having learned the lessons our ancestors learned during the Great Depression - there is real merit to being less wasteful, to not living beyond our means, to save.

    Gah! It's "$8.5 trillion", not "$8.5 trillion dollars."

    Don't forget, $8.5 trillion, and the auto industry can't get $25 billion.

    $25 billion is now pocket change. It's like me putting down $85,000 for a house and then telling Sprint I can't pay my $25 phone bill.

    By that logic, they should be able to give me 10 grand, as it's the equivalent of a few pennies tossed at a panhandler -- a career field likely to get much more popular, one thinks.
