Quite a coincidence

42 years to the day, another power outage in NYC. We watched it from our apartment in Joe Stalin Towers. It was a big deal, affecting 25,000,000 people, according to TIME, as opposed to something like 0.015% of that today. Best of all, CNN and its confrères did not exist to overhype it. (Air Florida, a few years later, was the thing that gave a new meaning to 24/7 news.)

    Dark Days Ahead?
    Saturday night’s Manhattan blackout could be a harbinger of things to come.

    Aging infrastructure plus government meddling via regulations and mandates could make blackouts much more frequent.
