I will drive my Aura for a long time. Not to honor the loss of a great car company, but the resale will prob be crap.

REWARD EXCELLENCE!

Well, I guess hindsight is 20/20.....Jill probably has nowhere else to go, with Saturn being wound down,she probably took the only way out--retirement. I figure she knew about this for enough time to "retire" before word got out.

I'm sure she got quite a generous package, and obviously today's announcement was known well in advance.

When the road gets a little nervous, take one of these.

parachutes don't get much golder than this ... doing a good job has nothing to do with it ... it's a perk for being in the the "club" ... usually the worse the circumstances, the fatter the package to get such executives out the door quickly and to keep their mouths shut
