Iconic Hummer brand sold to Chinese manufacturer

Yet another signal of the shift in the balance of economic power away from the United States.

Actually, the Chinese are welcome to them – horrible, road-hogging, monstrosities that belong, at best, on some wild, rocky land far away from the city. Not on my suburban streets, blocking my view on the road and often driven by young men who don't really seem able to afford them.

Meanwhile, perhaps a new awakening of American ingenuity can be applied to producing cars that are efficient, cheap and popular. In other words, world beaters.

It's time.
