Ford stopped in at one of his plants in a surprise visit. It's good to see someone at least try to be one with the labor. I think Ford has done that marvelously. In this day and age where companies that build cars are worth billions and billions of dollars, to see a family owned company, and to see the head of that family act like he cares about the company, is reassuring. I really think he does care, in large part because he has the weight of the family name and the respect that comes with that name in the balance. If Ford goes down, then Bill Ford will become a laughingstock. If it survives, and I think it will, people will remember the name of only one executive who saved it. Bill Ford.
