on how bad these people really were or still are.


(CNN) -- A Washington state utility released audiotapes Thursday that it said revealed bankrupt energy trader Enron Corp. plotted to take a power plant off-line in 2001 to jack up electric prices in Western states.

nAz, I had a friend back in Ca.....nice guy, and an honest guy.
He bought and sold energy for PG&E.....(he's since been promoted out of that section)...always wondered though, why he never picked up on what was going on.
Energy was being diverted out of Ca, then sold back to them at a premium.
Peak hour loads in each section of the country, depend on acquiring energy from somewhere else, even from Canada
I think our country is pretty vulnerable in our grid system.
Screw up some transmission lines, and maybe the "whole" country gets blacked out.
I don't think they'll get the top guys from Enron though, too "connected"

To this Day I still can't believe that California elected Arnold, as a Republican,knowing that Enron was in the oval office plotting against the Western States.####
