"We must take sides. Neutrality helps the oppressor, never the victim. Silence encourages the tormentor, never the tormented.” - Elie Weisel

“If you are neutral in situations of injustice, you have chosen the side of the oppressor." - Desmond Tutu

"There comes a time when neutrality and laying low become dishonorable. If you’re not in revolt, you’re in cahoots. When this period and your name are mentioned, decades hence, your grandkids will look away in shame." - David Brooks

    The explanation is simple, the three members (hacks) on the PUC board were not able to comprehend — like the rest of the New England regulators — federal law. DeSimone, Curran and Gold, two legal eagles and a PhD, did not have the wherewithal to consult with someone who can understand the written word and follow the legal arguments of lawyers from the Conservation Law Foundation. How pathetic and criminal these people are.

    And kudos to The Journal for never missing a non-story. I am not surprised that news which could cost ratepayers tens of millions of dollars is not deemed newsworthy and is consciously ignored, along with the decision of the PUC.
