On Squirrels and Scripts

Alan Schriber, chairman of the Public Utilities Commission of Ohio, said he is confident the state's power companies will be ready. What I really worry about is a squirrel biting through a power line or a blizzard knocking out power, causing some people to fear it's being caused by Y2K, Mr. Schriber said.

The site suggests that Ohioans should start the new year with five days worth of food on hand and a three-day supply of water (a gallon per day for each family member). They also should fill up their cars, have extra cash on hand and collect paper copies of important records before Dec. 31. Gather your supplies gradually. Start early! the Web site advises. Don't wait until November or December 1999 to purchase extra items. Last-minute purchasing can cause shortages.

If public officials are going to use a script, do they have to sound like they are reading it word for word?

Where are all the good acting coaches when you need them?

C'mon people make me believe.......

Yo, Squirrel King;

I have it on good authority that Michael Jackson is looking for a good follow-up song to his last touching love song to a rat: "Ben" (from the movie "Willard"). Will you let me keep my nuts if I send him your way next time he calls?
