Time For A Bake Sale

Where the heck are we going to find this kind of money:

Billions of dollars are needed to shore up the faltering North American power grid if more big blackouts are to be avoided, but the incentives needed to lure that kind of cash are missing, energy analysts say.

"We need between $50 billion and $100 billion over several years to upgrade the nation's transmission system," said Kurt Yeager, president and chief executive officer at the Electric Power Research Institute (EPRI) in Palo Alto, California.

Kinda makes you wish we hadn't already spent that $70 billion on our illegal invasion of Iraq (not to mention the $4 billion a month we're still spending), doesn't it? Or maybe you wish we'd invested some of that tax cut that's going to cost us $54 trillion by 2008. Heck, you might even wish we'd free up the piddling $8.9 billion a year we're spending on missile defense--that would come in handy, no? Well, that's what I wish, anyway.
