The People of Long Island vs LIPA

Imagine, 18th Century Living in 2012. A day or so is doable, a week is agony and two weeks is unbelievable – but that is exactly what’s happening right now 30 miles from New York City.

As I type, there are more than 140,000 homes in the Northeast still without power or heat 15 days after Hurricane Sandy hit. Of that figure, 58% are said to be LIPA customers. The state-controlled monopoly LIPA spent ten days with more than a third of their captive “customers” without electricity in the freezing cold. And to add insult to injury, they had absolutely nothing constructive to communicate during the storm – not by email, by phone, in meetings or on social media.

And then there was a whole mess involving rumors of door to door inspections that, fortunately, our elected officials stepped in and put a stop to. Just imagine a million people running around in the dark and cold with no food in their kitchens and no gas in their cars freaking out about having to wait for an inspector to arrive before salvation would come.

“Disgrace” is one way of putting it…

I go at them on national television below:
