My sadness in its downward sp'ual is much more personal. You see my grandfather, my mother's father, worked in many capacities at GM before ultimately being named a vice president and head of the Pontiac Division in the 1950s.When it came time for me to buy my first car, the only question was which GM car I would buy. In the 45 years I've been driving, I've owned a lot of cars and every one has been a GM vehicle. My uncle retired from GM and most of my cousins worked for GM at some point during their careers. GM provided my family with not just a livelihood but just as important, it provided us stability and loyalty.During the past year, I've thought of Grandad with every report on GM's undoing, certain that he's remembering well the words of former GM CEO Charles E. Wilson, "So goes General Motors, so goes America."
