Make It So.

If Honda actually comes to Greensburg, Indiana as expected it does absolutely nothing to diversify the job base of this automotive manufacturing state. However you can't turn down 1,500 well paying jobs even if they're automotive related. At least many workers laid off by GM, Ford, Chrysler, and Delphi could get jobs there. I simply wish state of the American auto industry wasn't so bad that so many excess workers were available for transplants.

My guess is when the plant opens in 2008 it will manufacture a newly redesigned version of the Honda Fit. While the subcompact and efficient Fit is new to the U.S. everywhere else in the world it is already a 5 year old design. Hybrids, we don't need no stinkin' hybrids!
