Quick Hits (092111, Late Morning): Solyndra-LightSquared-Gunwalker Roundup

Filed under: Lucid Links — Tom @ 11:32 am

This is going to be pretty much of a linkfest without embellishment, as there’s too much happening to attempt to detail each item noted.

This post will also to an extent help readers catch up if they haven’t been with these scandals (and they are “scandals,” i.e., “disgraceful or discreditable actions, circumstances, etc.”).

I will probably be adding to this compilation during the next day or so as new developments occur.
