Picking at GM's plan

Evan Newmark at the Journal does just that and is not at all impressed.
"But the restructuring plan comes up short on the most fundamental question. Will this company actually make money? Just look at the details — or what details are lacking."

Bridgestone cutting more than 150 jobs

The automotive industry's crisis wave has landed in La Vergne, where Bridgestone will lay off almost 10 percent of its work force. The company also leaves the door wide open for more cuts.

"Prior to making any final decisions and in the spirit of cooperation during these challenging economic times, the company stands ready to immediately begin discussions with the USW on what, if any, actions could be taken to continue consumer tire production at that facility. If, after these good faith discussions, the decision is made to cease most or all passenger and light truck tire production at the plant, the elimination of consumer tire manufacturing could occur on or before June 30, 2009. This action could result in the elimination of approximately 500 hourly and salaried jobs."
