Weekend Open Thread: Fighting the Power Power — and Winning

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

Somewhat verbose attorney, semi-retired due to disability, residing in northwest Brea. Occasionally runs for office against bad people who would otherwise go unopposed. Got 45% of the vote against Bob Huff for State Senate in 2012; Josh Newman then won the seat in 2016. In 2014 became the first attorney to challenge OCDA Tony Rackauckas since 2002; Todd Spitzer then won that seat in 2018. Every time he's run against some rotten incumbent, the *next* person to challenge them wins! He's OK with that. Corrupt party hacks hate him. He's OK with that too. He does advise some local campaigns informally and (so far) without compensation. (If that last bit changes, he will declare the interest.)
