Government Motors Management Incompetent? No Way....

Except way, of course.  Here's an excerpt from a brief article at Popular Mechanics arguing that the actual number of fatalities from the GM ignition fiasco has been understated:
Yesterday in Detroit, General Motors' CEO Mary Barra spoke to shareholders about the ignition failure issue that has dominated the automotive news cycle—and based on what she said, maybe rightly so. As tragic as the deaths are, they've exposed some stunning corporate incompetence and systemic cultural problems at GM. So maybe it's not surprising that a broken corporate culture would understate the number of deaths related to the failure. Maybe they really can't get accurate data; maybe they don't want to. Hard to say.
Disgusting.  That company should have been allowed to go out of business back in 2008.
