  1. I wish I knew the answer to that question. In fact, I wish the mainstream media would do enough research that one could formulate at least a moderately reasoned opinion. But mostly these days we get sound bites rather than real data. What is the value to Delphi of the modified union agreement? Who knows? How badly is Delphi off at the moment? Who knows? What is the value of the other measures Delphi wants to take – plant closures, layoffs of white-collar staff? Who knows?
