Is Toyota Being Railroaded?

It may just be coincidence, but the same year the US government bails out US automakers General Motors and Chrysler, Toyota is under the magnifying glass. With recall after recall in the news, Toyota's reputation went from excellent to poor in a matter of weeks.

The financial incentives given to General Motors and Chrysler had little impact on the overall big picture with the US economy, so maybe leveling the playing field may became an option. It just seems that the Toyota recalls were overly publicized and timed so that the ills of Toyota remained in the mind of consumers for weeks.

Since the US government is in the car business, I detect a conspiracy to legitimize the automaker bailout and create artificial fiscal results...

Ron Mohr Article in Feb 2010 Issue Of Bowler's Journal

Ron Mohr, PBA Senior Tour 2009 Player of the year, has a great article on page 14 of the February 2010 issue of Bowler's Journal magazine. It is great to have Ron in the news, and let's all think spring and look forward to the opening tournament of 2010 PBA Senior tour. The first stop is the PBA Senior Dayton Classic, and runs from Saturday, April 17, 2010 to Tuesday, April 20, 2010 in Dayton, Ohio. (click on article to see larger print)

Ron Mohr article on Bowler's Journal
Oh yeah, I almost forgot to post the Jim Mohr bowling update for February 14, 2010. I received hundreds of emails reminding me to post.. Well we were on the same pair as usual, 23 and 24. And as usual, the right lane hooks way less than the right. The 1st game actually seemed ok, but midway 2nd game and 3rd game, I was lost. You will see game 3, I actuall shot 127! That is the worst I have shot in over 30 years. At that point, I was happy that Ron Mohr had the article in the Bowler's Journal, so I wouldn't have to post my scores. However, after I made the adjustment and calmed down, I did ok - total for 9 game block was 1767 for an average of 196.3. I can't complain about 196 average aver shooting a 127. I think next week, we are going ot ask for a different pair..
