mid-day time waster

last week gm reported that due to slumping sales of trucks and suvs it will be shutting 3 assembly plants in the near future. some reports indicate that these plant closures may herald the beginning of the end for the hummer brand.

d) donating them to high schools throughout the country so that they can continue the grand homecoming tradition of smashing a car for charity."
e) your disbursement idea here: "

-dumping them on THE Ohio State University campus to be victims of arson during riots following Buckeyes/Michigan games.

Guess what year I lived in Columbus, Ohio?

Up-Armoring them and sending them to Iraq free of charge.

dan, i suppose that makes some sense. would we distribute the up-armored hummers to our military units or would we distribute them to whatever former "terrorist" group that we now consider "allies?" just wondering.
