To the Editor:

I thank Peter Brown for his thoughtful comments regarding the Sept 11 attacks in his Sept. 24 “Opinion” column (“Industry’s job in time of horror: We must carry on”).

He captured a perspective we all need to embrace in this critical economic time (particularly in the auto industry) and provided a clear path to the high road for our future endeavors. It is a piece worthy of print in any kind of magazine.



ATTENTION COMMENTERS: Over the last few months, Automotive News has monitored a significant increase in the number of personal attacks and abusive comments on our site. We encourage our readers to voice their opinions and argue their points. We expect disagreement. We do not expect our readers to turn on each other. We will be aggressively deleting all comments that personally attack another poster, or an article author, even if the comment is otherwise a well-argued observation. If we see repeated behavior, we will ban the commenter. Please help us maintain a civil level of discourse.
