    Chris,

    I thought the NYT piece was very good. The intro painted his idiosyncrasies and vision, which was essential to the backbone of the story — that he had a idea that might have steered the company towards competitive vehicles but he lacked the confidence or resolve to override nettling middle managers who couldn’t get off SUVs.

    Now maybe his vision will lead the company back. And if not, yikes.

    Plus, the essential problem is lousy cars, not the pension issues. If Ford cars were wildly popular because they were the most pleasing to the eye and best performing, all the pension talk is moot.

    The ford focus. Need I say more?

    I’m out.
