Baptism by recall fire for top GM execs

General Motors (GM +0.9%) has doubled the number of customer service reps taking calls from customers about its large ignition switch recall.

Senior VP Alicia Boler-Davis notes in an expansive corporate blog post that the customer wait time for the recall is now down to under a minute.

The automaker has taken some deserved lumps for its actions surrounding the recall, but the current crop of execs - including wartime CEO Mary Barra - have been lauded for their early reaction to the crisis.

    GM is making some nice cosmetic changes =
    but the wench underneath remains the same =


    Translation = the underlying fundamentals are not improving but deteriorating =
    Translation = we started out with 1 recall which become two,
    we started out with a few fatalities which seem to be growing;
    Translation - the clock started clicking with some juicy lawsuits progressing;


    Final translation = Anything above $20.............
