9. I agree with you wholeheartedly. And certainly the "private sector" energy companies and fuel co's

with all their huge profits ought to do a lot more. And what the hell do those companies do with all their profits besides pay CEO obscene salaries and bonuses and pay their rich stockholders? Yeah, I know, many pension funds are invested also but these funds always take the first hit when shit goes bad. It seems to me that the energy power companies have not invested in more up-to-date technologies for protecting their infrastructures and ability to detect most needed services. And at a minimum, fuel companies ought to have mega disaster vehicles and better plans for delivering fuel in emergencies. If the government can fuel planes in the air, there just ought to be some way to better deliver fuel on the ground.
