Why can't the whole Moraine complex be used to produce an electric hybrid which is already in great demand.The facilities are some of the most modern available in the U.S.Seems like that would put G.M.and Chrysler back on track.

If the Hybrid was to be built in the Dayton area, there should not be a problem with Federal bail out money for G.M.

You up there in Ohio helped to put yourselves out of jobs! I have family that worked and retired from GM and their retirement checks are unreal! They made 20 to 30 dollars an hour! More money than most nurses and other hospital workers that deal with peoples lives. If one little thing did not go their way off to picket they went! I say Ohio people are stupid! These workers put themselves out of jobs due to their stupid demands! I do not blame GM for pulling out and taking jobs elsewhere. Ohio is very stupid and one day all of Ohio will see their mistakes!

To: The Editor

Subject: Fireman Fred J. Peckolt published by East KY Magazine

“Fireman Fred shares my pains of fame”

Fred J. Peckolt has invaded my literary territory. I, Leon Harrison, am a, uh…The Duke of Hazard and the Buckeye Bureau Chief of East Kentucky Magazine. Well, my old Woody’s coffee-bum, uh…consultant, buddy and pal, Fireman Fred, recently had one of his fire-safety-tip letters printed in East Kentucky Magazine, by one of my better publishers and editors. Not being a jealous fellow, I do not mind and do not whine about Fireman Fred finally making the big time.
At the Moron City Awful House, uh…the Waffle House, Fred was signing his autograph upon and within the pages of this July/August 2008 issue of East Kentucky Magazine. I have been giving him some lessons and suggestions about how to write a big bold distinctive memorable signature for people and posterity, if not for publicity, prestige, profit and prosperity. I have been likewise signing copies of one of my recent letters that was published by one of my better editors at the Dayton Daily News. You can also enclose them inside those Christmas cards as thoughtful personal sincere thrifty gifts.
Unlike Fred, I do not complain or whine about not making a dime from my writing and online time [research]. Not that either of us brag until we make people avoid or run from us or gag. All of this would be a good deal, if we could at least trade our autographed copies with these people for a meal. So, henceforth and hereafter, if our fans want these autographed copies, they are at least going to have to buy us a meal, including coffee and diet pops. These magazines cost at least $2.50 apiece; our friend, Luther MaGill, gets them gratis since his late mama, Maudie, came from Jackson, KY. My fans shouldn’t complain or holler if I charge them ten dollars.
Yes, Fred has been sharing my pains of fleeting literary fame, including those of posing for pictures and of being burdened by an infamous, uh...famous name. Our coffee-bum conferees, consultants and audiences love it when we humbly hint and hesitatingly tell them all about our literary abilities, efforts, accomplishments and disappointments...for at least an hour or so, like ya know.
However, it seems to me that, before I retired [Feb. 2007], I had more friends when I was working seven days a week [at the DMAX factory] and owned those two Chevy S-10 pickup trucks...that were at least good enough for me to haul their stuff with. Since I have retired from the DMAX factory, and can no longer be fired, I have had to cut down on those waitress-served meals, car washes and haircuts. I have had to likewise ration my compassion and those charity checks that I used to enjoy signing and sending, that may soon be ending with my GM benefits and pension. For three decades or so, Fireman Fred has been sharing the pains of my fleeting fame and the glory that comes with our mutually-shared literary territory, especially when our news and views are printed by Steve Sandlin within and upon the Opinion pages of THE NEWS.
