The fact that we've somehow come to a point where the CEOs of the Detroit Three must beg for money in Washington is shocking.
What's as disturbing, though, is that many outside Michigan -- and some even inside Michigan -- have reached some point where they just don't care.
Maybe they don't care because Detroit's image was so badly tarnished by all those bad cars years ago. Maybe when you lose somebody's trust, you never really regain it.
And it's sad because many people working in the auto industry today are building far better cars than their fathers or mothers ever built.
