When news finally started to 'leak' questioning the WMD, I saw this fool on TV dancing around in a chorus line routine, I thought, hmmm this is so out of character, because he is always pictured and protrayed in more serious lite.... He knew from the start, that the WMD fiasco was bogus, but, he went along with that fool Bush, his 6th cousin. Yes, he was a patsy...! ...or made from the same DNA as the current President.

Lordy, the lack of education round here is frightening. The blackout occurred mbm, not because Niagra Falls stopped falling or dried up. The blackout occurs because the grid is set up to share energy production based on regional needs, switching occurs regularly. The problem arises when the grid is maxed out of its capacity by having too little energy to meet demand, no reserve or backup energy production, and when there are two few sources of energy on which to rely on in the first place.
