     The latest off to the General Motors (NYSE:GM) bond holders: zero cash, zero debt, and a 20% ownership in GM stock, which may become worthless if GM files for bankruptcy within 60 days. This is down from 8% cash, 16.5% of new debt, and 90% on GM stock that was on the table just a few weeks ago. Whoa! Harsh.  Looks like the unions are going to take it on the nose too. I guess it’s not a good idea to lend money to people who crank out crappy products to a disappearing market at higher prices than their competitors. If this isn’t the Fat Lady clearing her throat and getting ready to sing, I don’t know what is. The death watch continues.
