  • After announcing the closing of a whole lot of Chrysler dealerships yesterday, GM came out with 1,100 more that will be shut down in October. [Tennessean]
  • As promised, Governor Phil trekked down to Perry County with their 25% unemployment rate and announced the creation of 300 new jobs today. [In Session]
