It amazes and disturbs me that anyone would settle with Con Ed for any amount of money. Not so long ago, a woman in Sunnyside, Queens died following a gas explosion that was a result of Con Ed's negligence -- just the latest in a long line of people who have died at Con Ed's hands. This company has been guilty of criminal behavior for years and yet they continue to get away with it -- they seem to be accountable to no one. Why? Because they have enough money to shut people up. I can't believe that the state didn't continue with its prudence proceeding.$17 million is NOTHING to these animals. Are people's lives really worth $100/customer and a few trees??
