Opening Arguments

Into the pool!

This is a "Saturday Night Live" skit waiting to happen, isn' it?

After being skewered by Congress and lampooned on NBC's "Saturday Night Live," the CEOs of Detroit's three automakers may end up making their return trip to Washington by car as they seek a federal bailout.

The Detroit area's auto industry, whose livelihood depends on the health of Chrysler LLC, Ford Motor Co. and General Motors Corp. spent the weekend e-mailing and discussing how to set up a giant car caravan to seek help from Congress.

Caravan? Why don't they just bite the bullet and do a real car pool? I want to know which one makes them late because he isn't ready on time, which one talks too much, which one always has to have another rest room stop, which one makes them go back because he thinks he left the stove on, which ones whines incessantly "Are we there yet?", which one gets to ride in front with Dad and stick his tongue out at the one in the back seat and which one gets them lost because he knows which way go go and just never you mind what that stupid sign said. I mean, if they want to really convince us they understand ordinary folks, come on!
