Rome, NY Sucks

But At Least We're Not Utica

Power Base

So, it looks like we won in terms of stopping NYRI. Or at least we made it slightly annoying. I think we can thank a tanking econommy for making this power plan less fiscally effective more than all the weak protestations. The only way this can ever be stopped is by making Utice (and Rome, hopefully) part of a muncipal power system where we could decide who gets our electricity.

If there is a recovery (which is doubtful at the moment) or Obama jacks up electricity prices, NYRI or its successor will be back in the game. This is more of a respite than anything else. We're responsible with our resources, NYC isn't. Like the state's new "eat the rich" tax strategy, those who have something the other guy wants will have it redistributed by the state. We're already getting downstate's drug dealers and welfare cases.
