Want to know how much your life is worth?

To PG&E, apparently it's about $4,000. They didn't install a $32,000 valve, saying it would give us "a false sense of security" (WTF?). The result: eight people died and 55 homes were destroyed.

How much is that going to cost, PG&E? And will the costs be passed on to us ratepayers?

PG&E's new moto: safety first, unless it costs more than $4,000 per life saved.

Better to spend that money on political campaigns, right PG&E?

Absolutely outrageous.
