Manipulating the Grid

I wonder if it's just a coincidence. That such a massive storm hit the most densely populated area of the country days before the presidential election.

It would seem to underscore our utter powerlessness. No power to turn on the lights or watch tv. No power to decide what becomes of us.

Don't get me wrong.... I lean heavily demo and for Obama. I would love to have a viable socialist candidate. I would love to have been born into a socialist country.

It's just an interesting convergence of events. Monster storm. Elections. Cold, dark and destroyed houses. Waiting. Always waiting for fixes. Band-aids on broken bones.
