Quotes

Himself - Correspondent: William Dixon put together the criminal conspiracy case that the federal government brought against General Motors and the others in 1947. At 84, he's the only principal in that case still alive. There was nothing you could do to bring back the streetcars.
William Dixon: No, nothing, not a thing. You're absolutely right, yes.
