We have learned the deaths of 13 people due to a faulty ignition part/switch in General Motors vehicles could have perhaps have been avoided. Pathetically, the situation could have possibly been averted by simply adding a two-dollar part to each ignition in those automobiles. Repeat, a two-dollar part. The deaths of 13 people (or more) was caused by the unwillingness to add a two-dollar part per vehicle? All this hot mess, loss of life and limb, for a two-dollar part per vehicle?

This time last year, Dan Duquette arrived at the annual GM meetings just a week into his new job as Orioles executive vice president focused on getting reaccustomed to fellow front office executives. The 2012 GM meetings open today in Indian Wells, Calif., and run through Friday. The meetings don't usually lead to much news, but for general managers, it serves as the opportunity to lay groundwork for next month's winter meetings in Nashville. Duquette will now have a much better grip on things at the meetings, especially after the Orioles' best season in 15 years.

Vancouver Canucks general manager Mike Gillis says Peter Forsberg is going to stay in Sweden this season. Gillis was considering signing the former Avalanche star but said he learned Monday that Forsberg wanted to stay in his home country. Forsberg, who is playing for Modo of the Swedish Elite League after 12 NHL seasons spent mostly with the Avalanche, has dealt with nagging ankle and foot problems for several years. "My understanding is Peter is going to stay and play in Modo, and he won't return to the NHL this year," Gillis said Monday.

The Treasury Department says automaker General Motors Co. and insurer Hartford Financial Services Group Inc. have repaid billions of bailout dollars. Treasury says GM repaid $1 billion of $6.7 billion in loans it received as part of a $50 billion rescue. Hartford repaid its entire $3.4 billion bailout. The money came from a $700 billion bailout that Congress passed in October 2008 amid the worst financial crisis in generations. The payments mean Treasury has been repaid $181 billion of the money it disbursed.

Even so, GM carries $62 billion in future retiree health care obligations on its books. The automaker has long maintained that legacy costs put it at a disadvantage against its global rivals. The expense adds $1,500 to the cost of every vehicle it builds in the United States.

DETROIT -- News that DaimlerChrysler AG was discussing the possibility of selling the Chrysler unit to General Motors Corp. cheered its mostly German stockholder base yesterday, but drew jeers elsewhere. Analysts and industry executives questioned why GM, whose own turnaround efforts are still under way, would use some of its $26.4 billion in cash raised by selling profitable assets such as GMAC to buy another unprofitable North American automaker. The companies declined to comment on the reports.
