    I'm in for the 28th. My preference is for Plymouth as it is closer for me.

    Who knows how we'll be feeling.  I'm sitting on pin and needles waiting to hear about the auto loan situation.  I'm going for the 'miracle' and in my bones, I think this will work out somehow.  I'm a new user.  How do I find your profile?  Thanks.  Sydney

      Not knowing is the worst part, we do have water, a lot of very smart people, and a lot of hard working people, most of whom who hate the winters (in late Feb), but love the state, so we will survive in one fashion or another.

      We have to make it work out. You just don't abandon so many people.

      from WSJ

      General Motors has hired lawyers and bankers to consider whether to file for bankruptcy protection.

      While still fighting to forestall the move, GM management recently tapped bankruptcy veteran Harvey Miller of New York law firm, Weil Gotshal & Manges LP, to handle what would be one of the largest and most controversial filings in U.S. history. Others involved in the matter include restructuring veterans Jay Alix, Evercore Partners' William Repko, and Blackstone Group's Arthur Newman.

      The hirings have both a practical and political bent. Such a large case typically takes lawyers and bankers months to prepare. It also highlights the auto makers growing desperation as it petitions the U.S. Congress for a $14 billion bailout package.

      Ouch!
