May you live in "interesting" times...

With GM on the verge of going tits-up, and the UAW taking part ownership of the company (and thus directly and immediately involved in operations), it's going to be "interesting" to see how the unions deal with a more immediate and direct connection of the consequences of their attitudes, demands, and actions.
Personally, I think the UAW has been more like a 10-pound tick on a 20-pound dog; now that all the perks, benefits, and salaries they've demanded over the years affect the company they've now got part ownership of, I think they're going to have to re-evaluate their positions on a whole raft of issues.
