By the way, the economic disaster that is US energy policy is terribly on my mind in the past weeks. I work for the company mentioned in my previous post, and my life over the last several weeks has been divereted into crisis mode of, you guessed it, raising prices. I have several different issues with the whole fiasco, but I'm too damn busy raising prices to get decent posts out! :)
SO instead I'll point you to other posts that I think address some of the same issues. Galileo over at Galileo Blogs has a great post on the most infuriating aspect of Congress' "non-action" actions toward this whole situation: the creation of the speculative scapegoat.
