GM "Dumps" Saab

The public relations execs at GM seem to have decided that General Motors is not just selling the Swedish auto maker SAAB, they are “dumping” SAAB. This is a cheap attempt to save face by implying that they must rid themselves of the offending matter. Even so, perhaps “dumping” is a more accurate description of GM’s relationship to SAAB than their public relations execs had intended. Consider that to “dump” one must take a thing of nourishment or benefit, crush it, run it through their system to extract all of its value, then abruptly evacuate the spent matter. That’s what GM did to SAAB, so I guess they really are “dumping.” Thankfully, Koenigsegg and SAAB are now unfettered to take their “dump” and turn it into a world-class automobile company that will in all likelihood, be a serious future contender in the US car market.
