1. Yay!!!

My power was off for 18 hours. We do not have wildfires at 106th Ave. and MacArthur Blvd. If they needed to turn it off in the hills they should have done that. Plus, their stupid e-mails said it could take 1-5 days...DAYS...to turn the power back on. Someone needs to teach them a little humility. And customer service.

2. Yay is right-- NPR is also slamming them

Sorry you had to go through that, wryter2000 -- all because of their GREED and MISMANAGEMENT. I did not know that they had the means to upgrade their grid-- many times-- and declined. After all, they want to keep those profits high!

I thought our governor's speech was fantastic-- it's about time someone called them out without apology or pulling punches.

We have some great governors, if you don't count Reagan.

5. LOL

Arnold calmed down after we defeated some of his Looney ballot initiatives. Reagan has just about destroyed this country.
