An interesting set of stories: One about Kelo's wake, another about the Sun-King's (Lichtarbeiter?) plans to expand the electric grid so's it can suck up, in a centralized kinda way, all the penny-ante renewable energy sources that don't exist yet.*
Put 'em together, whattaya get? A whole new flavor of Green tyranny! Still tastes of jackboot. Funny, that. But not to laugh.
* Of course if we're talking rooftop and backyard stuff, as long as you are synchronous with the grid, you're more likely to be keeping it from being overloaded rather than creating any need for new high-tension lines.
