You have to love the leaders of the auto industry and the different drummer to which they march. The cause of all their problems used to be government interference and pressure for more crash-worthy and fuel-efficient cars. Then they moved on to blame the consumer: Safety doesn't sell and they won't buy smaller cars. They advanced to blaming the lazy, featherbedding workers. Now it's "Japan bashing." Charles M.
