Summary: I'd feel pity for white people who think that their days are numbered in this country if that thought weren't so laughably deadly. And wrong.
Summary: An uncertain power grid requires better communication from leaders. A late Friday news dump is a classic technique to bury bad news, not rouse the public to action.
