General Motors is ringing the alarm bell over a delay in the second installment of its bridge loan. Chrysler faced the same thing when it was waiting on its first installment, but eventually got its money in time.
GM puts the delay down to having to fill out a great deal of paperwork and having to wait on the Treasury to finish doing the ballroom-and-cocktail circuit during a little thing called the presidential inauguration. GM President Fritz Henderson said the money should arrive "in the next several days."

Cue the wailing and gnashing of teeth...
