What was the point on reporting all of the nothings? If they didn't donate, then they don't deserve any recognition at all, even if it is just a nothing next to their name. The name shouldn't even be on there.

I think that the point is that they should get the recognition for nothing. These are all major companies operating in the U.S. Several of them have large manufacturing facilities here. Why not recognize them for their nothing. People should know this when shopping for a new car.

Here is something to consider, although it may be unrelated. Ford, GM, Chrysler, and Harley all sell fleet vehicles to American citys. You won't find many Daewoo or Porsche police cars. The "Big Three" and Harley are giving back to a city that buys their products. VW and Hyundai get little, if any, business from citys/government entitys. What this means escapes me at the moment other than it's nice to know we can all pull together in times of crisis. Of course I allready knew that, as I am from Oklahoma City, and I watched as the world helped us after the Murrah Building was bombed. BTW some of the rescuers here in OKC were NYC Firefighters....the same ones who died at WTC. \:\(
