Weekend Open Thread: Fighting the Power Power — and Winning


 Powered by Max Banner Ads 

As I didn’t pre-load a Weekend Open Thread for this week, this interesting post on takeovers and sabotage of public power utilities will have to do. It’s pretty good stuff.

If you want to get the pretty good joke (one that isn’t a joke), watch the video.

This is your Weekend Open Thread.  Talk about the above, or anything else you’d like, within broad bounds of decency and decorum.  No Dearthwatch this week.  Dearthwatch is sleeping.


About Greg Diamond

Worker's rights attorney now moving into "good governance" litigation. North Vice Chair of Democratic Party of Orange County and occasional candidate. Proud to be prolix. Unless otherwise specifically stated, his writings never speak for the Democratic Party at the local, county, state, national, or galactic level. He tries to either suppress or openly acknowledge his partisan, issue, ideological, and "good government" biases in most of his writing here. If you have a question about any particular writing, just ask him about it and (unless you are an pseudonymous troll) he will probably answer you at painful length. He lives in Brea but generally doesn't blog about it. A family member works as a campaign treasurer for Wendy Gabriella in AD-73; he doesn't directly profit from that relatively small compensation and it doesn't affect his coverage. He does advise some campaigns informally and without compensation, although in 2014 he may receive some compensation for campaign consulting and fundraising for the campaign of Jorge Lopez for Orange County Assessor.
