Blame it all on Texas
BY MARTHA SMILGIS -Special To The Examiner
Publication date: 09/27/2002
LET'S STOP pussyfooting around California's energy crisis and tell it like it was -- "screw California" was the mantra of about all the Texas-based energy suppliers and marketers.

As the truth trickles out of the 18-month Federal Energy Regulatory Commission investigation, it's increasingly obvious that the utility companies (Southern California Edison and PG&E), as well as California consumers, were hostages of Enron, Dynegy, El Paso Corp. and a gang of Southwestern sharpshooters...

Katherine Harris Booed at Bradenton Town Hall Meeting
by Donna Wright

BRADENTON - U.S. Rep. Katherine Harris had planned a quick town meeting Thursday night at Bradenton Kiwanis Hall.

But when hundreds of people showed up with detailed questions, her tight schedule didn't allow detailed answers, and a frustrated crowd turned angry, booing the congresswoman several times.

After introductions at 5:30 p.m., Harris spoke for nearly half of the allotted hour. It was after 6 p.m. when she asked for questions.

Harris told attendees she wanted all questions asked first before she answered.

The lines at the microphones were long.

The boos were loud.

"We want our answers now," a man in the back of the room shouted.

She said, "Doing it this way will allow more people to speak."

Harris' logic didn't sit well with the standing-room-only crowd.

The crowd's mood already was testy before the meeting began. Security guards and Harris' staff confiscated any written material people tried to bring into the hall...
