It is so frustrating living in this area sometimes. In the last year or so there was some sort of legislature saying the electric company cannot shut of service during the winter months for people that have not paid their bills. The story I just read in the Baltimore Sun mentions the fact that 84,000 people could potentially have thier electricity shut off come April 1st when the moratorium ends.
Just the other day I was reading an article in refferring to the panel that is researching why there has been an increase in electricity and natural gas prices. It does not take Sherlock Holmes to figure out that the electric company has the right to be paid for their service. They are passing on the fact that 84,000 people are not paying for power to the rest of us. The Sun paper does not make that correlation, I don't think it is really a reach.
You wonder why the very liberal newspapers are all going under. I remember when the reporters use to report the facts in an unbiased opinion and they used to think. That era has apparently ended.
