  1. So apparently “reasonable and predictable” means “easy to game”. Good to know.

  2. Wonder how long this was going on before they got caught…and what sort of slap-on-the-wrist the Gret Stet of Texas will sternly administer.
    Sigh: years ago an incinerator operator–if I remember right, Rollins–in this area (Baton Rouge, Loosiana) was caught violating all kinds of air-quality regulations, so the judge insisted they be fined…all of $10,000 dollars, i.e., one Mitt Romney bet.
    And then he suspended the fine if Rollins paid for an air conditioner installation at a local community center.
    Ain’t the free market grand?

  3. Busted!
    Here in MO the electric company (Ameren UE) had a devastating dam break at the Tam Sauk reservoir a few years ago. Now in the news, they want to build some more plants and tout their history of safety – even though they are also involved in a high profile whistle blower scuffle.
