Down the cash for clunkers chain

The Wall Street Journal has a neat piece about how the Cash For Clunkers program has created a boom market for the compound officially required to kill car engines; one local chemical company is raking it in. Via the Beachwood Reporter, where there's a good discussion of the benefits of the government program.

One data point: I was in Michigan this weekend, and picked up the Saturday Detroit Free Press. Damn near the entire news section was about the C4C program, which might get extended.

Vaguely related: Loving the Beachwood's Life at Work series. Along similar lines, Detroit Blog is the best thing on the Internet. Truly moving literary journalism about the city.
