Ever read Henry Ford's compilation of articles from his Detroit newspaper? The book's called "American Jew", very very good read. Henry Ford was a filantropist whereas Bill is a capitalist. Henry Ford innovated and, more or less, sparked the birth of the automobile. One of the finest men of the 19/20 century. His great grand-children could use taking a age out of his book. The modern day world needs more Henry Ford's, he's so much more than automobiles. Do some research, he is one intriguing individual.

Ford is still feeling the effects of Jack Nasser (Nasser the slasher) and will be for a couple more years. Bill Ford was stuck trying to bring a company back, that was in the start of a downard spiral.
