In case you didn't know this was going on, Detroit is in the grips of the Assembly Line Concert, a 240-hour non-stop shebang that still has more than 100 hours to go. A. J. O'Neil, a Detroit-area coffee shop owner, decided to attempt a record-breaking charity event that would assist, support, and call attention to the American auto worker.

He's done it by trying to line up 240 acts -- from professional bands to politicians (no, really) to Detroiters who just want to play a ditty to show their love -- that will perform one hour sets for ten straight days. And even though the folks in the logo are obviously listening to Skynyrd, the Free Bird folks won't be appearing. So far there are 213 acts scheduled. There's still time to play if you've got the feeling, and if you just want to watch, you can head down any time of the day or check out the concert's live feed.

      I don't get it. Charity to support Cancer Research, OK. Support to develop wells and irrigation systems in Africa, OK. Charity to help recently fired union workers who sucked a greedy company drier than it could afford, all the while being corporately mismanaged by greedy CEO's...welllll, not OK. This whole charity case over the Big 3 is ridiculous. I feel bad for those who lost their jobs but there are dozens of emerging industries that will need skilled labour, and besides, looking around the globe, its not like we can complain about anything.
