Re: Wonder what happened to Angel?

And with that, it's time for me to announce I no longer own a Ford Five Hundred. Out in the drive is an Obsidian Black Subaru Forester XT with a "dark gray" (black) interior. The XT means it is the turbo version, an H-4 boxer engine. Sporty suspension, fun to drive, symmetrical all wheel drive. The ...

Read the last line of my post again.

They write from a WV standpoint. From that standpoint, they see no other side because there IS no other side.

Not to mention it is an editorial. There is no obligation to be unbiased in an editorial. Quite the contrary is expected.

The people who wrote that editorial know what happened to the stamping plant in South Charleston, WV. They know what investment GM and/or Ford has made in West Virginia. They also know what investment Toyota has made in Buffalo, West Virginia. They see no other side, because from that standpoint the...
