A flair for the dramatic: The big three automaker CEOs and their nine hour hybrid drive to DC
Wed, Dec 03, 2008 at 3:58 PM
It's about 524 miles from Detroit to Washington, DC. Google Maps tells us it would take a little under 9 hours to make the drive
. Throw in pit stops, fast food grabs, and parking time and you're looking at ten or eleven hours of travel , a full two days if they spend the night and drive back.
I'm sure it would be great for them to get away from the bone crushing stress of running a disaster of a company, but what GM, Ford, and Chrysler's employees and shareholders need now is someone with their hand on the rudder. They need someone in the office making things happen, not taking a personal day and wrapping it in a road trip.
Guys, next time just fly commercial. Go first class if you really need, but please drop the greenwashery, and just get'er done.
