I remember a time when we discussed how shortsighted California was in its policy to deregulate energy. George Bush was running for president and telling people that without the immediate change in our energy policy we would be seeing more of these "rolling blackouts" across our country and that America was in danger of losing its edge as we lost control of our energy prices. What a line of crap! While our energy policy is in need of reworking, the evidence presented showing why we needed to build more Nuclear reactors and how critical it is for us to start drilling in the Arctic Wilderness looks ridiculous in hindsight. So, should we just forget these companies which caused such turmoil in California? I know they have agreed to pay a steep fine but shouldn't someone who "engineered" this disasters be sent to jail? Didn't these individuals cause society more harm than, say a marijuana trafficker or a car thief? Is it because they are rich and well connected? Or is it that we really do have two standards of justice in this country. And, why isn't the president and the conservatives screaming for justice? Personally, I find this to be much more in need of a full congressional investigation than whether or not Bill Clinton got any and lied about it. The article is here.
