Bi-Polar – The Thin Edge of Dignity

I’m one of 40 or so elders – I could say seniors – equally nice sounding, but without the gravitas –  or mature– nah, that’s for movie ratings – or, more scornfully, geezers,  or wickedly demeaning  – old farts.  I guess you could say all-of-the-above. After decades of achievements and societal contributions, and professional accomplishments (and being a bit of a pompous ass ) with  a smidgen of pride,  I prefer the politically correct, solemn, and dignified first word choice –  who reside in an Assisted Living Facility (ALF.).

It’s Time to Make The Base Load Review Act History

South Carolinians, take notice. The Base Load Review Act allowed SCE&G to charge us some of the highest electricity rates in the southeast for the construction of V.C. Summer- an abandoned, unfinished nuclear power plant that will never produce power. SCE&G was able to raise our rates 9 times in less than 10 years, including a full year and a half after knowing the doomed fate of the nuclear project. So far, SCE&G parent company SCANA’s shareholders received $529 million of the $2 billion paid by SCE&G customers for V.C. Summer.

Tickets are still available, and only $10.

Though it would be another couple of centuries before Anglo-European artists like Thomas Hill painted California, the scenery must have made an impression on Drake and his crew as well.
