Bright & Early: Waaaaambulance Edition

Good morning, Nashville. After the Security & Exchange Commission’s ruling last week about how the TVA needs to stop polluting North Carolina, the kind folks at the TVA are whining about how fixing the problem will increase their expenses. Nevermind that they just spilled a billion gallons of toxic sludge in East Tennessee. Nevermind that they’re pumping pollutants over the border into our neighboring state. Nevermind that they’re jacking up our prices so much that no one can afford to pay their electricity bills. And nevermind that whenever our bills go up, so does the CEO’s salary. Anyway, we’re predicting they’ll probably use it as an excuse to raise our rates some more, at which point we’ll quit heating our house altogether.
