So Long, Hummer

This is what I was looking for in the story:

The sale of the Hummer brand to a Chinese company will not impact the production of U.S. military vehicles. Military Humvees are produced by a different company, privately held AM General, based in South Bend, Ind.

A bit troubling that one of the signature vehicles of the US military is now going to be owned by the Chinese, even if it’s not the exact same thing. It’s not troubling for military reasons, but rather as a further indication of our economic slippage.

Start your kids learning Mandarin, they’re going to need it.
