"Leaner. Greener. Faster. Smarter."

"This is not about going out of business, this is about getting down to business."

That's from a recent TV ad for YOUR new General Motors. I say yours, because you and I are now the majority shareholders in GM. Here's the full ad:

This is kinda refreshing coming from the company that brought us the Hummer.

Sorry, I can't resist:

Don't get me wrong, I hope GM--and the rest of the nation's automakers--have finally turned a corner, but why did it take a total financial collapse and a massive government buyout before GM decided it was time to innovate beyond "bigger, badder and bolder" to "leaner, greener, smarter?"

Perhaps if they'd gone down that road a decade ago they, and we, wouldn't be in this mess. Better late then never I suppose.
