Opinari - Latin term for Opinion. Opinari.net is just what it seems: a cornucopia of rants, raves and poignant soliloquy.

This insightful quote courtesy of Ipse Dixit:

"The report we issued last month presented more than 100 recommendations covering virtually the entire range of concerns that face the American people. One of the concerns, obviously, is the aging power grid the growing problem that we have in getting electricity from the power plant to the light switch. It's clear that we must upgrade and expand the power grid. If we put more connections in place, we'll go a long way towards avoiding future blackouts. Another broad aim is to increase energy supplies from diverse sources; from oil and gas, renewables, coal, hydro and nuclear. This is the kind of balanced approach we think is essential if we're going to meet the country's energy needs down the road and take care of many of our other concerns, especially with respect to the environment." -- Vice President Dick Cheney, U.S. Energy Association Efficiency Forum Washington, D.C., June 13, 2001

Hmmm. It seems upgrading the power grid was an administration goal all along, no? Perhaps if we stop politicizing every bill and proposal, and stop attaching superfluous riders and pork barrel spending to bills to damn them to be thrown aside (this goes for Republicans AND Democrats), maybe these imbeciles on the Hill would get something done about this problem. Energy crisis? Yes, perhaps. But moreso, we have a moron crisis.
