Taking away their keys

For once, I’m with Thomas Friedman: If we’re going to bail out the market-blind, energy-blind, no-innovation-developing U.S. auto industry, we taxpayers need some brutal concessions in return. Indeed, we need some brutal concessions from everyone on the growing list of entities getting a federal bailout. And right now I don’t see anyone looking after the taxpayers’ interests in that regard. (There may be somebody, but I couldn’t tell you who it is.)
