    Your tax dollars at work!

    Does anyone remember Solyndra? (There is a TW in the picture.)

    Maybe you can't work there unless you have a TW, which is great, cars are not allowed.

    Car on the left is security cop keeping an eye on me while I was taking pictures. Mini van on the right I know nothing about.

    Almost empty parking lot.

    Out of business sale. I guess it was the creditors, us taxpayers, trying to get some of our $750 million dollars back.

    Hey Tony,

    I don't get down that way very often anymore, but a few weeks ago I was on 880 in Fremont and thought that I saw another solar energy company's(?) name on one of the Solyndra buildings that face the freeway. Was I dreaming while driving?

    Tesla is just down the street a short distance.

    Thank goodness, our region's Solar City add campaigns featured an Isis corporate character that was just too spooky for me. Elon Musk can change that.
