Power outages a sign of the oligarchic times
The extended power outages for Baltimore Gas and Electric customers are a symptom of the decline of this country. When I was growing up in the 1970s in Northern Virginia, we never lost power for a week. Not when we received two feet of snow. Not even during Tropical Storm Agnes. My neighborhood in Howard County has been without power for 13 days within the last year due to three separate storms. What's changed?
