Expedia Inc. feels your pain

Consumers, of course, weren't the only ones feeling the pinch of money markets and other investments gone sour in the economic collapse.

At least one online travel company, Expedia, felt some pain, too.

Expedia Inc. recorded a $1 million loss in the quarter from an $82 million investment in a AAA-rated money market mutual fund, the Reserve Primary Fund.

Expedia stated it was unable to redeem its $82 million investment in the fund because of the fund's holdings of Lehman Brothers debt securities.

Lehman Brothers filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection in September.
