Roast in Hell.

Well, I hope it's 120 degrees and the sun is beating down wherever Ken Lay is... because the victims of Enron are feeling the heat again. Also, does this say renewable energy independence or what?

Early Monday, some 100,000 power customers in Northern California and the Central Valley still had no electricity, along with 44,000 in Southern California. That was down from a high of 180,000 customers affected over the weekend.

More than 100 patients were evacuated from the Beverly Healthcare Center in Stockton on Sunday after temperatures reached 115 degrees and the nursing home's air conditioning gave out.

Seems that Queens, St. Louis, California, and several other parts of the state are having serious energy problems. If we invested 1% of what we've spent on the Iraq war on better, more efficient, clean energy alternatives, would we be in this mess?
