    It's not just about affordability, it's about reliability and how much load is on different parts of the grid.

    Anyhow, this political grandstanding by California is idiotic to say the least. Although I'm surprised Arizona stooped to the level of California in playing "who has the bigger penis" with California.

    Actually, if you see the documentary--Eron:Smartest Guys in the Room -- that summer is what helped get Arnie elected.

    Ken Lay and Bush were "best friends"? Link?

    Amusing how when it comes to Obama and his relationship with Wright/Ayers/etc., people like you considered it a smear to make absurd claims like that.

    So the theory is that it would be trivial for LA to find another power supplier, but it would be incredibly difficult for AZ to find another power purchaser?

    Sounds like wishful thinking.

    Well this whole thing in itself is entirely unnesecary, just have have the Mayor of LA and the Governor of AZ just fight in the ring and be done with it.

    Uhhhh. We are in the dumps too. Not as bad as CA but not good either. We just had a vote for a temporary 1cent sales tax increase.

    Our dickhead senators and congressmen threatened to cut education so they could get the votes in for the bill. Scumbags.

    Questioning or criticizing another's core beliefs is inadvertently perceived as offensive and rude.
