Secretary Chu's Aggressive Parting Salvo
Bill Sweet, IEEE Spectrum
The jury is out on how effective Nobelist Steven Chu has been as Secretary of Energy, and how his tenure will be remembered. But it can be safely said that his farewell letter will go down as one of the most thorough, detailed, outspoken and even aggressive missives ever left by a departing Cabinet member. The letter is as interesting for what it leaves unsaid as for what it says--but what it does say is plenty interesting, and the way Chu said things is interesting too. . .
