Comment we have enough hometown wackos to worry (Score 1) 150

like the goofs who shot up a transformer in California about a year ago. folks in northeast New Mexico that have nothing else to do late at night but take potshots at the high-tension line insulators. these issues are easily but expensively solved by putting the lines underground. as we have seen in New York City, they don't get upgraded on schedule and you tend to have duct explosions and fires.

as soon as they decide to take on the "smart grid" with its 4-character default admin passwords and no firewalling, we then have real issues. laws should make it clear to the utilities that their shareholders pay for that crap.
