AS lot of people here should be apologising to him...

-- Orp (orp@orp.s), January 01, 2000.

I guess you didn't listen to him clearly. He said this was just the beginning and there was a ways to go - that there would be problems and we would start seeing them and they could continue for some time. He said he would only breathe easier if he saw nothing by the end of Tuesday or Wednesday. He reiterated over and over that was still very concerned. It was the least optimistic talk I've heard from him yet. He also thanked the people that showed great concern and even those with different points of view as to outcome of this because they are what helped wake everyone up and spur everyone on - that we were and still are at GREAT risk. So, what is there to apologize for. We were and are at great risk and there are still people unprepared - unprepared for this risk and any others to occur. Did you see how serious the storms in Europe were? Was anyone prepared - NO! They are part of the problem, not the solution.

Yes, I am grateful that the infrastructure stayed up! That is major news. Now for the next hurdle.
