Or it would seem from the looks of the CNN piece:
General Motors is preparing to announce that the Pontiac car brand -- once marketed as GM's "Excitement division" -- will be killed off, according to a source familiar with the decision.
These are, of course, the death cries of the company, which had hitherto been muffled with yards of duct tape bearing Management and UAW fingerprints. This is the end. Can we please stop sending money now?
