Friday linky stuff

My crack (unpaid and long-suffering) research team came up with these:

Dave sent me a link to an article in Business Week When GM First Messed Up, written by a noted auto industry journalist. While Dave and I often joke that the decline started with the end of tail fins in the very early 60s, what GM was doing in the late 60s and 70s really set the stage for GM's market share decline and today's bankruptcy. Pride goeth before the fall, as they say.

On a more family oriented note (well, ok, it's a bird family), a co-worker sent me this link: Lovebird Peregrine falcons found nesting on Durant Hotel downtown Flint and chick Maize is born. I guess little Maize doesn't have a little bruddah named Blue. (It's a University of Michigan thing.) This led to the following fictional conversation:
Majestic (the mom): "Now, eat your dead mouse like a good baby falcon."
Maize: "But Mom, I want Chee-tos!"
Majestic: "Maize, we are falcons. We don't. Eat. Chee-tos. You're not leaving this nest until you eat that mouse."
Or, y'know, something like that.
