I've seen several references to Summary View in relation to announcements.  I find no information on what the summary view is by default.  Can someone explain it or point me to a link that explains what it is and when I'd want to use that?

The summary view is just a way to show minimal information about the announcements. Rather than the default view where you see Title, who wrote the announcement, and the announcement body across a couple of lines, in Summary View you just see the announcement body.

It's just limiting the information shown to go easy on the eye.

 Also you can change the columns shown in the webpart easily by going into web part settings and changing the view.

One follow-up - I recently got a question about why the announcements did not expire when they hit their expiration date.  In researching I found that it is customizable to make it expire through the filter in the view, but in one blog I read the person just recommended changing it to Summary view.  That's kind of what prompted this question and why I was looking for a pointer to a resource describing exactly what it did.  So does a summary view also remove expired announcements?

Remove no, not show yes.

Expiry date is just used for filtering it doesn't delete anything.

Summary view is fine, but in the same place you set summary view you can also edit the view and choose your own columns, filters, and sorting to show. This is clearly more powerful, and pretty straightforward to tinker with.
