It seems like just yesterday General Motors was teetering on the brink of collapse. Actually it was 40 days, and 50-billion-dollars ago, and now the slim-downed auto giant is emergency from bankruptcy and it's leaders are talking about a bright future. That would be good news to taxpayers. We'll be reporting tonight on why the company now believes it can start re-paying the government ahead of schedule.
There is a lot more to report on that shameful desecration of graves at a Chicago area cemetery. We'll have that, plus the diminishing worth of some of those I.O.U. notices cash strapped California has been doling out.
I hope to see you later for the Friday edition of NBC Nightly News.
