5394: Retired And Tired News.

Driving oneself crazy with a MultiCultClassics Monologue…

• The Ford Motor Company posted $100 million in 1Q profits. However, the automaker still needs more workers willing to accept early retirement and buyout offers. The company’s new tagline is, “Drive One.” Internally, it may be revised to, “Drive One Towards Early Retirement.”

• Toyota beat General Motors for the global automotive sales lead, selling 2.41 vehicles versus 2.25 for GM. Toyota may ultimately drive GM into early retirement.

• Surprise, surprise. The R. Kelly trial might be postponed again, as a lawyer seeking to join the defense team is fighting the judge’s refusal to let him participate. By the time this case is tried, Kelly will be well into retirement age.
