    Where do I order a “seaweed” birthday cake? I’m sure that will be a hit with the kids around these parts ….

    The fringe right is bumping into the fringe left in odd places. I agree, they are all nutz.

    Did you read the WSJ op-ed slamming Newt Gingrich today for pandering to the farm community on ethanol? Newt pitched those against ethanol as urban types who are anti-rural! If this is indeed correct, what an absolute a$$hat. I wish he sit down and shut up. Republicans are sure to lose in future elections if the campaign is pitched as urban vs rural. What an idiot.

    CF, one of Europe’s most troubled economies is run by a nation of attorney’s (more per capita than the US). Shocker.

    pps – Does the NY Times editorial board read its own newspaper?

    a possible solution to those opposed to smart meters is allowing folks with smart meters a lower cost for power usage. those dedicated to the privacy issue [whatever that might be] can pay a standard rate; those with time of day metering and other smart meter features would pay a lower rate.

    • Edgewater, that’s a great idea. I’ll bet you that 99% of consumers would take, say, a 15% break in their electric bill in exchange for letting CL&P know when they’re running their dishwasher. The remaining 1% can sit under their tinfoilhats and stew.

    My only worry about this technology is the ability of energy companies to control your power from afar because you have overused your share, as they perceive it. awhile back I read somewhere, I can’t find where right now, that new construction is required to have thermostat controls that can be altered from “energy central”…..nuts? Hmmm
