Arlington will remain open–and apparently at full capacity–while GM slashes 30,000 jobs and closes other plants around the country. GM’s problems aren’t at its plants. Its problems are at its headquarters–run by a bunch of parochial Michigan State and UM grads whose uncles and fathers populated the same offices 30 years ago. GM might survive if CEO Rick Wagoner had the guts to break out of the mold, abandon Detroit, move its entire operation here, and leave its Michigan mafia behind. Caught flat footed–again!–by high gasoline prices, the whole executive structure of GM needs to be rooted out.
