“Dear Aunt Solyndra,”

[Dr. Klaus L.E. Kaiser provides a little satire.]
Sorry not have written to you for a while. Life is just so hectic. I have been very busy with my new company, the Green Wonder Technology Inc. We are making all kinds of novel green energy systems from solar panels, to windmills, to geothermal heating units, to algae scum and more. Well, we are not actually making any of such things yet, but the government grants for these promising enterprises should be coming thru very soon.
As you know, the government has seen the light. There is lots of green energy all around us, we just need to find a way to collect it. I think you know what I mean. Of course, I am the President and CEO (as well as Chief Financial Officer) of the new company. So, once the grants are rolling in, we should be pretty flush here, at least for a while.
Fortunately, there is little control on how we spend the dough; we just need to regularly fill out a bunch of forms, a job which we have farmed out to China for cost-saving reasons. Other than that, there really is no obligation of any sort.
As soon as things are running full steam, I hope you’ll come visit. I should like to show you around the place. If you are game for it, I can even take you on a fly-over in my new plane. It is a breakthrough as it is made from papier mache and rubber cement, and runs on biofuel.
Thanks to the Canada Free Press for this bit of humor
