The $100,000 Question: Take the Ford Employee Buyout?

Sheebus. Y'know, we're a little bitter about this. We understand the plight of the autoworkers up there in Michigan, and we sure as hell wouldn't trade the gorgeous day we had here for a Midwestern February day. But that said, $100,000 dollars to get out of one's job? Or 15k a year to retrain? We're lucky if the door didn't hit us on the way out! Anyway, the Detroit News has got more. And while we think it's admirable on Ford's part, and far more than just about any other employee would get in any other industry, we're about as jealous as Jennifer Aniston right now.
