Came back about twenty minutes ago. I’m amazed that in the year 2003 it can
take almost a full day to restore power. The people on the radio are accusing
Pataki of “playing the blame game”–but quite frankly, I think he’s right: This
is unacceptable, and I want to know why it happened.
I’m still not sure there wasn’t some monkey business along the way. Even if
not, it shows how we’re still totally vulnerable to anything–freakish acts of
nature/coincidence as well as malicious evil-doers.
