For Now, At Least, General Motors to Keep on Truckin' in Arlington
The bossmen for the Big Three are having one hell of a time getting Congress to bail 'em out, and General Motors' stock is down 5.5 percent today to $2.72 -- or about 80 cents more than A.H. Belo, which has taken an inexplicable nosedive since the opening bell. But some good news, at last, from the Dallas Business Journal, which today spoke to GM's Arlington plant's spokesperson, Wendy Sabo. And, far as she's concerned, reports the paper, "Unless something drastic changes, the plant is currently inundated with orders, making the idea of layoffs at the plant in the near future seem unlikely." --Robert Wilonsky
