Blame the auto industry or embrace it and contribute?

As the first semester of my 3L year begins to wind down, it's about that time to start writing papers and studying for finals. It's probably not the best time to start converting my thoughts and facebook/myspace group into a blog, but considering no one is reading this (yet), i'd guess that no one is going to lose sleep over the small number of posts throughout the next month. Anyway, I saw this quote in Crains Detroit today. I'll give credit to the person who said it, but thats besides the point. It's a novel idea and one to take note of. I think the quote can stand alone.

When asked about the auto industry's stuggles, Lynn Drake-Batts, senior associate with UGL Equis Corp. said,
“You can blame the automotive industry, or you can be thankful this industry is here and look for other industries to bring to the area.”

Great quote. We need more positive thinkers around here. As the country follows Detroit into an economic downturn, Detroiters and Michiganders alike need to be the ones to start the rebound: locally, nationally and internationally!
