100% Safe Tons

Everyday, I'm inspired by my drive to work. More recently, with the possible impending collapse of General Motors, things have started getting to me more. Columbus is in the heart of the Industrial Center of the United States. Maybe GM will come out a more competitive auto company, maybe it will completely fail. I don't know. What I do know is that the industrial midwest is in for a world of hurt over the next couple of years. It's heart has already been ripped out once by the collapse of the US steel industry, it will be hard for this area's soul if the auto industry does the same. So whatever my personal feelings are towards the UAW or the Teamsters my thoughts and prayers are with the families that are impacted the most in the coming year. I heard The Black Keys' song "I Got Mine" one morning recently and things just kind of got to me all at once so I wanted to put this together. It's quick. But it will remind me of frozen commutes to work in which i drive past the once mighty Buckeye Steel Castings on my way to play my own part in Ohio MFG. The Black Keys are from Akron, Ohio. Sometimes you can't even tell if a song is good or not if it hits you right.
