In Passing

Bride of “Why government costs so much”

This Time For Sure!  Dept
Associated Press:
...The Energy Department has approved two loan guarantees worth more than $1billion for solar energy projects in Nevada and Arizona..., under the same program that paid for a $535 million loan to Solyndra Inc., a now-bankrupt solar panel maker...
What could possibly go wrong?


UPDATE (110929 14:40):  Well, possibly this?

Of that $1 billion in guarantees, $737 million went to "Tonopah Solar,” a subsidiary of a California-based company named SolarReserve.  Which has an "investment partner” called PCG.  Whose number-two man just happens to be Nancy Pelosi’s brother-in-law.

Nothing like keeping it all in the family.
