Dumb Grid, Dumb Congress

The 90s: twenty mass power outages a year, Today we have a hundred, I fear. Extreme weather events, while Congress snores, And down a proverbial rat hole, some $50 billion pours.   A century ago, we funded progress and beyond, And laid power grid foundations — now Congress yawns Population rises, technology explodes, but leaders and leadership simply implode.   […]
