. . . and I'm taking a bit of a hiatus. It also seems that the news these days is remarkably staid and uneventful, and I don't expect much will change for the balance of the year as everyone seeks a well-deserved respite.
Yes, it's good that the automakers got a temporary reprieve. They seem earnest in pursuing the remedies required to sustain the industry, so we'll see.

I'll check in periodically over the holidays. Enjoy yourself in the meantime. January is going to be rugged terrain for all of us.
