I will end the week with the writing of others: specifically a piece for those who still believe in the American spirit and possibility and optimism. For my fellow American car lovers out there let's dedicate this one to my indellible memory of the day our new mint green 1967 Pontiac Catalina arrived in our driveway -- the first new car my father was ever willing to buy, or could afford. In my view, if we're resolved to save the American car business, I only hope that the people who are working on the problem in Washington are among those who own and love American cars. I say that because a couple of them look like 1987 Volvo wagon types to me.
I hope you have a good weekend. We hope you can join us for tonight's broadcast.
