Power failing

By Remy Benoit

We just spent the last 4 hours here without power in the the August heat because of something, somewhere that went amuck. It was uncomfortable - not so long, not so intrusive as it was for weeks in the aftermath of Katrina.

The temperatures are quite high in Iraq, although a different kind of heat that ours in the Southland. I understand it was close to 95 in Philadelphia today which is usually quite uncomfortable in the summer too.

From the AP at MSNBC Iraq’s national electricity grid nearing collapse Residents ‘fed up’ as power, water become increasingly scarce. In hot temperatures, with out relief, without water, tempers flair and the hardships, the anger, only increase. Not good for our troops - not good for the Iraqi people.
