Major power outage

By | August 14, 2003

Of course, every blog and web news site has something to say about the current massive power outage that has hit the north-east part of the country today. The most interesting thing I’ve heard so far is from the Department of Homeland Security: “The department is working with state and local officials an the energy sector to determine the cause of the outage and what response may need to be taken.”

I really hope that “President” Bush doesn’t hear the above statement. If he does, he might decide that the response needed is to attack Canada or something…

What I want to know is: Who would actually think this was a terrorist attack? I think government entities append, “we are pretty sure this was not terrorist-related” to these types of reports simply to keep US citizens scared of the bogeyman, er, terrorism.
