Saw your letter in the WSJ today. Good point. Another problem: batteries are chemical. Thus, they are limited in what they can do. This idea (inherent in the cell phone comparison of the earlier letter) that battery technology will follow something like Moore’s Law is absurd.

GM is obiously in the very best of hands.
