Cool video !   PBS last Monday night Had a program on Henry Ford from the beginning to the end of his life as well as his Son Edsel Ford. 

This video gave me a whole new impression of Henry Ford only not in a good way.  The way he bullied his son  Edsel was shameful.  You never get this side of the story from most accounts.  I was aware of his hatred of Unions however, and how he tried to fight them. I wasn't aware of he how he fired most of his top men and at the same time always taking credit for all their work as though it was his.  Never knew he was such a raciest either. I lost a lot of respect for the man.   :mellow:

 Amen to that!  I was absolutely shocked to say the least. :o
