Re: “Utilities' budget-billing customers get surprise charge

Please people. This is no surcharge or additional charge. This article is way off base. Why is this level of distortion necessary? There is no additional charge to participate in the program. Budget billing customers pay the same as everyone else. This is sloppy reporting and editing. It looks like you've decided it's more important to sensationalize a non-isse and never make clear what's actually happening than to provide any sense of fairness to the utility provider or to the customers.

Re: “Hangin' out with T. Boone Pickens

I enjoy Tosches' sense of humor. But Pickens deserves greater scrutiny than this opinion article provides. Pickens says he knows more about energy policy than anyody. I wonder how much energy it takes to construct a fantasy hunting and fishing paradise from the Texas landscape. How many cities could we light up with the energy it took for the thousands of semi-truck loads of landscaping materials? How much integrity does a man have who bankrolled the swift boat ads against John Kerry? I wonder if the $58 million self-promotion campaign might be better spent on a wind development project in North Dakota where wind is plentiful and capital is scarce. How much of the Pickens ranch is powered by alternative energy? Makes you wonder why we praise the energy gods like Pickens who, along with the fourth branch of government -the office of the Cheney vice-presidency -are responsible for the disastrous American energy policy that rewards oil profits and consumption over energy conservation and alternative energy sources at nearly every turn.
