Blackout picture

I thought this was an interesting view of the blackout and thought I would share.

Great pic -- that would make good desktop wallpaper. There's been a lot of talk on the net about that blackout, and why it happened, with fingers being pointed in all directions. Read this article the other day: Power Outage Traced to Dim Bulb in White House.

Hmm...Are you sure...I zoomed in far enough and found me in Detroit drinking beer and running around the Hotel parking lot naked!!!! Zoom in to 12 mile and John R. road and you'll see me in the Red Roof Inn parking lot.

Jon - I read that article that you linked to and it was quite painful to read all the way through. It's a prime example of how there is a group of people who just hate Bush and try to blame him for anything they can. One thing the article didn't mention, Clinton had 8 years in the White House after Bush Sr. in which nothing was done to try to update and modernize the power utilities. Bush 43 has attempted to do something with the power utilities right from the start of his Presidency, only to be fought and blocked by those groups that are trying to keep him from accomplishing anything that will help the people of the USA or even the rest of the world.
