It seemed odd to me that the state put the success of "deregulation" in the
hands of power companies that had nice steady income streams under the old
system and were explicitly loath to give up their nice, predictable,
high-margin lives. Kind of like letting the foxes construct the hen house:
don't be surprised if they put some back doors in it. Am I missing
something about the legislative history of this? Why didn't Grey Davies see
this crisis coming?

And as for all the Seattle/California sniping, just remember: you're all
just decadent West Coasters to to folks Out East. :-)
