Why don't they wait and review what the utility finds out and solutions they suggest? They are the utility - government commissions are dumb-asses who think they can design the utilities.

Wait, I see. Democrats want power even when there is no power available. Maybe instantly restored power lines?

"You really need direct contact with those neighbors. The media only works if you have electricity. They need to turn on the television. So that's stupid," Antonovich said.

So, I guess the utilities should mail a letter to people during a major outage?

The only thing that will avoid this as well as our 3 week ice storm outage is underground power lines. That is a huge expense I'd rather not pay...

I bet all the wind-farms were locked down and that smart grid technology helped a lot!

Maybe semaphore? You'd think wind farms would make bank in a wind storm, lol!(JK) When So Cal gets a 3 week ice storm, we're all pretty much effed. Peaces!

Truth bothers you. Yes it was the Bush family connections to Ken Lay at Enron. Do not forget all the subsidies Enron received from the Bush presidency. You know the Republican welfare program.

Enron was slick willies baby, shitbird. Try to keep up!
Enron's cozy relationship with Washington didn't start there. Documents obtained by TIME show the energy giant enjoyed much closer ties with Clinton Administration regulators than was generally known. Long before Cheney's task force met with Enron officials and included their ideas in Bush's energy plan, Clinton's energy team was doing much the same thing. Drafting a 1995 plan to help facilitate cash flow and credit for energy producers, it asked for Enron's input—and listened. The staff was directed to "rework the proposal to take into account the specific comments and suggestions you made," Clinton Deputy Energy Secretary Bill White wrote an Enron official.

Sorry but Enron had ties with G.H.W. Bush which was before Clinton. G.W. Bush has ties through his father when he was governor of Texas. The facts of the Bush family and Ken Lay and Enron go back further than your try at distortion.

Your filthy lies and distortion butthead just do not work.
No wonder Lay had Enron give $50,000 to pay for Bush's second inaugural party in Austin in 1999 -- a showcase event that was organized by Karl Rove and others to help the Texas governor step onto the national political stage.

After Bush gave Enron exactly what it wanted in 1999, by signing legislation that deregulated the state's electrical markets, Lay knew he had found his candidate for president.

When Bush opened his campaign, Lay opened the cash spigots.

NBC News reporter David Gregory admits that while Enron gave President Bush and Republicans big contributions, there's no evidence they got anything for their money. That's certainly the case with Bush and the global warming treaty. Enron was a big backer of the treaty, also called the Kyoto Protocol, and yet Bush has abandoned it because of questions about the science behind the theory and the cost.

So it turns out that the company we are led to believe was exercising influence over the Bush Administration through campaign contributions doesn't have any influence at all on this issue. This fact makes a mockery of implications that Bush did the bidding of Enron.

Enron in attendance at October 1995 United Nations International Symposium on Coal Bed Methane Development and Utilization in Beijing.

Sorry, screwball. It was slick willie and the boys.

Keep it quiet that Joseph Kennedy was a nazi sympathizer and was relieved by FDR as Ambassador to England because of it. Also Henry Ford and several others.

Thanks, we'll 'preciate it.
