To the Editor:
Regarding General Motors' decision to sit out the Super Bowl: I would love to sit out anything to do with TV at all.
As a Chevy dealer I have the same price that everyone else does on Chevys. I have to be better at my job; I have to compete; I have to keep up with all the programs and possibilities for my store to profit and my employees to stay employed, etc.
TV stations bash car dealers, do investigative reports, support legislation and politicians that undermine my very existence, loudly and proudly bash the Volt, the bailout, the Republicans, the Democrats, the Liberals, tree huggers, Tea Partyers, etc. -- yet when times are tough they lower pricing and give us value-added crap to fill their slots, and when times are better they raise rates and send us on trips.
I am proud of GM for telling the Super Bowl "No thanks," and I believe that all of America and our children and grandchildren would be a million times better off if the TV just went away.
