#1 Beware the "loan" you get from the government. It is kinda like taking a loan from the mob. They WILL get their money back.

#2 Is bankruptcy really such a bad thing for these companies? Once bankrupt, they can renegotiate contracts with suppliers, dealerships, and unions from a position of strength, rather than continuing to do what led them to this situation. I'd rather they do that, come out viable, and not pay us back, than that they more or less continue business as usual... and can not pay us back. But then, I understand so very little about such matters.
