Remember Pan Am and TWA? Yeah, neither do I. But I do remember that for a time I thought I could impress girls by quoting Shakespeare from memory, specifically Macbeth. Anytime someone would mention the temporal nature of existence, which was a disturbingly common theme amongst girls that would agree to date me, I'd trot out those famous lines: "Tomorrow, and Tomorrow and Tomorrow. Creeps in this pace from day to day, to the last syllable of recorded time. And all our yesterday's have lighted fools the way to dusty death. Out, out, brief candle. Life's but a walking shadow." This all transitions very well into today's COTD.
I sometimes feel that the wrong 3 American automakers survived.
It is fun to wonder what the world would be like if the "big three" were Kaiser, Graham and Hudson...
